On Monday, January 23 students in grades K-6 were treated to a presentation from award-winning illustrator AG Ford. Mr. Ford spoke to the students about how he became an illustrator, and he showed them the process he uses to create his illustrations. Mr. Ford also talked to the students about the importance of practicing whatever skill it is they want to master. Students from all grade levels seemed to really enjoy Mr. Ford’s message, and they especially enjoyed watching him demonstrate a few quick sketches.
Throughout the week students had the opportunity to enter a drawing to win one of AG Ford’s sketches or a signed copy of the book Hello, I’m Johnny Cash. The drawing was held on Friday.
