This stimulating class takes kids on an artistic journey through the wonderful world of literature.  Each week we will read a story together, paying special attention to the illustrations.  The children will then create art inspired by the plot and/or illustrations. Children learn new art techniques and discover how stories can provide inspiration for art. New stories are explored each session. Beginner reading and comprehension skills are conveyed as part of the fun! Special for the Winter 2015 session, The Messy Artist welcomes children’s book author, Alidis Vicente, who will read her newest book for the Storybook Art class! Also, join The Messy Artist and Miss Vicente for a special book reading/signing event, paired with an inspired art project!
