Last week marked the end of our first block of Read! Write! Create! workshops and we celebrated with a series of drawing parties at the library!

There was food, music, and a ton of drawing fun.

We did some fun activities, like an exquisite corpse monster jam, silhouette tracing, and (my personal favorite) a collaborative doodle-walk piece!

First, we all chose one marker each and lined up single file around our canvas.

Next, it was time to move! We walked around and and around the table, drawing as we went.

Parents were invited to flex their drawing muscles too.

Next month, we’ll kick off our summer sessions, and we have a few exciting changes in store for the program. Until then, stay tuned for some profiles of our favorite publishers of graphic novels for kids.
