PICTURE BOOK NEWS

RENATO AND THE LION
I am excited to announce that my debut picture book, RENATO AND THE LION, is out now! We had a wonderful book launch, followed by an author's panel at Books of Wonder in New York City!

QUINCY
After many years of hard work, I am thrilled that my chameleon character, QUINCY, will come to life with little bee books! The release is set for February 8, 2018! While a completely different tone from RENATO AND THE LION, this book also celebrates art. But in this brightly colored story, we get to see more from the perspective of the artist.

SCHOOL VISITS
Currently I am developing materials to post on www.renatoandthelion.com for teachers to use in anticipation of a school visit. By September I will be eager to share the history of the book, as well as the process of making a book.

ARTS COUNCIL OF PRINCETON

SUMMER 2017 CLASSES
In just a few weeks, summer camp at the Arts Council of Princeton begins! I will be teaching mostly teenage classes this summer, from July 3 until September 1. It's never too late to sign up if your child is interested in learning classic art techniques but with the freedom to explore and celebrate their own methods of expression. Last summer we told ghost stories around the art table, bringing the "camp" experience to life.
After the summer, I will be teaching a regular session in the fall at the Arts Council. My main focus this year will be on illustration and making picture books, though I may also include drawing and watercolor classes as well.

In addition to these classes, I'm the Arts Council of Princeton Outreach Program Coordinator, as well as the Program Coordinator for ArtsExchange. If you are interested in volunteering for ArtsExchange, or would like your school or health care facility to benefit from art classes, please contact me.
