…It took place over 8 weeks at Otter Valley Union Middle School in Burlington, Vermont with teacher Kim Hewitt. (You can read more about this program’s backstory and my visit to them a couple months ago HERE.) The kids really enjoyed it, and so did us grown-ups! Each week students read a chapter from the book, followed by discussion and a hands-on activity.
For example, they drew a mini-comic and played different drawing games…
…they made collages and drew in their sketchbooks.
For the final session of the after-school club, I Skyped with the kids so they could ask me questions and show me drawings they had made.
It looks like we’ll hold this program again next year, so it’ll be a nice opportunity to refine the program further in the same location with the same teacher. Thanks for helping us make this happen, Artners Kim and Larken!
April is School Library Month, so go check out some books! And check out this great headshot by the lovely Jasmina Tomic.
