Franklin second graders had a visit from Kevin Hawkes today for their Creative Arts and Sciences program! He is an author/illustrator of over 50 acclaimed picture and chapter books including the New York Times best seller Library Lion, Have a Look Says Book, Chicken Cheeks, The Librarian Who Measured the Earth, and Weslandia.
It was such a treat to have him here, and he showed the process of what you go through as an illustrator: reading the manuscript, all the iterations, evolving the character, getting feedback, and he demonstrated lots of drawing techniques with tips and tricks to make things more realistic looking. They loved the presentation so much!!
