A GLIMPSE INTO CREATING PICTURE BOOKS WITH CHRISTY
Christy loves to talk about picture books and art. She is available for school, library, and conference presentations. Peek behind the curtain to get a glimpse at the way Christy works, see how a picture book goes from idea to publication, discuss where ideas come from, see original art, and enjoy a live drawing demonstration. Her debut picture book, Lucky, is full of opportunities to discuss science and how to incorporate it into stories. Students will learn how to create well-rounded characters, how to follow their interests and shape those interests into stories, and the beauty in a terrible, awful, no-good first draft.
