Join Caldecott Medalist picture book illustrator and author, Matthew Cordell, as he reads from his newest picture book, Hello, Neighbor! The Kind and Caring World of Mister Rogers. Following the story time, Matthew will lead an art workshop to demonstrate how he creates the pictures in his books--with old fashioned pen and ink dip pens and watercolor paint.
Suggested materials: ink dip pen, ink, watercolor paints and paper OR black felt tip pen and colored pencils, these materials will work especially well for the youngest participants. Links to suggested materials can be found on our website, www.societyillustrators.org.
