Sheffield Welcomes Illustrator Katie Burke!
Children's book illustrator Katie Burke came to visit some of Ms. Latronica's library classes at Sheffield recently. The students got a chance to learn about what goes into being an illustrator, see the finished book, and explore different ways of illustrating. Katie was even able to share the process she uses to illustrate digitally. Later students had a chance to ask Katie questions about her work, color and illustrate with her, and even share ideas about stories they wanted to write and illustrate themselves!
Thank you for spending your day with us!
