We had 36 children in the gallery/studio for a program callled "Draw me In." They are 2nd -5th graders from the region of North West, Ohio. They were shown how a professional Illustrator gets the manuscript in and the various steps to the finished illustration. The children had one month to write and Illustrate their books (just like us). A full fledged reception was held at our local public library, complete with punch and cookies. Several parents mentioned after the reception how inspired their child was to "make a book." This was a "Big Draw" for these little kids!
