With the theme "Dig Into Reading", I'm thinking of a cereal bowl with books inside and 2 spoons digging in. I am a family musical interactive comedian and I'm also a published author. My book is called "Spoon Boy". I also offer a workshop for teens and adults called BYOS (Bring Your Own Silverware). My web site is www.SpoonMan.biz . I have my library brochure, video clips and info about my book on my web site. My program is around 45 minutes. With multiple bookings (on the same day), I can be as inexpensive as $300 per show.

Mahoney, Daniel Writing with Pictures Workshop Literature- Authors,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists,
Visual Arts- Drawing
In my program the students learn the nuts and bolts of picture book making, from what the jacket's job is to how and why I choose the illustrations for a particular manuscript I'm working on. I share with the children everything I utilize while creating a picture book : rough sketches, story board, dummy book, and final artwork that actually goes in the book, as well the art I created that didn't make it in. Then the students become the authors as I illustrate the story they conjour up in a round robin storytelling session. I sketch it all out on a large pad of paper, then the students get to keep my art to make up stories of their own!

Crocker, Keith 3-D MOVIES - Comin' at Ya! History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Theater
When Hollywood received competition from the television studios in the 1950's, they pulled out a secret weapon called 3-D. Wearing a pair of blue and red cardboard glasses literally allowed the images on the movie screen to jump right off the screen and right into the audiences lap. 3-D was a process that was far from perfect, but for a brief period of time it was a rage country wide and gave some new excitement to the idea of going to the movies. Recently, 3-D has re-emerged and is again gaining in popularity and giving the couch potato audience a reason to rise out of their seats and come back to the movies. This program is one of the most complete you'll ever see in regards to the history of 3-D films and it includes a memorabilia show including posters and stills, plus a DVD presentation of trailers for films originally shot in 3-D.
