Friday, June 25, 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Corcoran Gallery of Art
Washington, D.C.

Do you linger over the pages of striking picturebooks, wondering how to tap their full potential in programs for children? Attend the 2010 ALSC Pre-Conference, Drawn to Delight: How Picturebooks Work (and Play) Today, and learn to look beyond the surface stories. Explore technique and design with art directors, museum educators, and the award-winning illustrators Brian Selznick, Jerry Pinkney, Laura Vaccaro Seeger, Javaka Steptoe, David Small, Yuyi Morales, Timothy Basil Ering, and Kadir Nelson—to name a few. Discover the innovative “whole book” storytime model, developed by Megan Lambert, Instructor of Children’s Literature at Simmons College, to help children derive meaning from everything picturebooks offer. Delve into the format’s relationship to graphic novels and the international and digital horizons. Studio demonstrations, hands-on opportunities, and original art door prizes will be part of the mix at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Join us!
