Our Visit from James Warhola

Yesterday we had the tremendous honor of having a visit from James Warhola. He read to us from his books, and talked to us about the process of planning and making a picture book. He brought original art for us to see including finished watercolor illustrations and sketchbooks and prototypes that showed the steps in making a book.

After talking to the elementary kids, Mr. Warhola visitted some junior high and senior high classrooms. He encouraged them to develop their own creativity and express themselves through writing and art.

The Daily Review wrote a really nice article about this visit, which is here.

That's really cool that James W. came to visit! I recently heard that Uncle Andy sold his first piece of art when he was 10 years old - off the back of his family's vegetable truck/stand.
