Picture Bookmaking

Teaching Artist: Sandra Griffin

This program introduces children to the joy of writing, illustrating and reading aloud their own original stories.  A published author/illustrator of children’s books, Sandra Griffin shares with students the process and rewards of creating illustrated books. Students learn how ideas can grow into stories and then published books. As children plan, write, and illustrate their own storybooks at their own pace, reluctant writers bloom and accomplished writers soar.
