Draw along using the different prompts shown to you in class, as we explore how illustrators find inspiration to create characters and stories. Participants will be led through various drawing techniques by artist Clare Pernice, who will help them create characters using found objects in a live drawing and coloring demonstration. Clare will share a few examples of children's books featuring different characters and stories. All you'll need to join in is paper, a pencil, and some colored pencils or markers (anything for adding color). 

Limited number of supplies needed - paper, pencil, colored pencils, markers (anything for adding color). 

This program is intended for children ages 7-10.
