Children’s Book Author/Illustrator a Hit!

Elementary students were entertained by children’s book author and illustrator, Bruce Arant, at a presentation held on Monday, Oct. 15 at the Burkley Fine Arts Center. Mr. Arant gave students a “behind the scenes” view of the processes of illustrating a picture book, from rough sketches to final artwork– specifically, for Simpson’s Sheep Won’t Go to Sleep! and Simpson’s Sheep Just Want to Sleep!  Students in grades 3-6 enjoyed an illustration workshop where they learned how to draw 20 different facial expressions.  Mr. Arant was in our region through partnership with many school districts as well as the support of our Fairbury PTA.
