Join author-illustrator and art instructor Joan Waites for a class using picture books as an introduction to famous artists and illustrators! Each class will include a picture book reading, brief introduction to the featured artist, and an art lesson incorporating basic art fundamentals and use of different art materials. This class will focus on the art of Georgia O’Keeffe, using Joan’s book A Bone for Bo: Painting with Georgia O’Keeffe. The class will be introduced to the artist and her work.
