Hold on to your hat because we have two events to tell you about today!
This Saturday (May 19th) it's STORYTIME in the Gallery shop. It's free, it's fun and it's a great way to make your kids sit down for an hour. Starting this weekend, in fact, we are hosting storytime every month with professional storyteller, Ruth Concannon! Very exciting. This month's theme is Colours and Shapes and the stories in question are Triangle by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen and The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers. Call in and grab yourself a cushion this Saturday at 11:30.
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL. This Saturday is also National Drawing Day. Ooooooh! Be sure to check out all the Gallery events planned here. There a numerous venues taking part and so many things to choose from.
Book of the Week #16
In keeping with National Drawing Day, our book of the week this week is What to Draw and How to Draw it (for kids), a seminal book by EG Lutz; originally released in 1913. It's rumoured that it was one of Lutz' books that sparked Walt Disney's interested in animation, and he did quite well, didn't he. There are beautiful illustrations and a vintage feel to this book. Step-by-step instructions turn simple lines into accomplished illustrations.
