Virtual Author Visit
On Tuesday, May 10th students will have the opportunity to Skype with artist and author Mark Gonyea. Mark has written several books including: A Book About Color; A Book About Design; Another Book About Design; and The Spooky Book. Most students are familiar with A Book About Color from art class. Students will have an opportunity to see Mark Gonyea’s studio, hear about his inspirations, and learn about the process for creating books. There will be time during the presentation for students to ask him questions. We are very excited to bring this digital learning opportunity to our students.
