I enjoyed a fun, FULL day at Webster Hill Elementary School today (the first of a three-day Artist-in-Residence Program.) I talked to the whole school about developing a story idea from the very basics to a full outline with a main character, goal, and obstacle – and a beginning, middle, and end. Then I got to put those techniques into practice with three fourth grade classes. In between, I worked in reading-time with the pre-kindergartners (who were SO SWEET) and a drawing lesson with one of the first grade classes. They drew AMAZING Monkey Ono’s! I can’t wait to go back and have more fun tomorrow! Thanks so much to the PTO at Webster Hill who raises money for my visit! You guys rock!
