Matt Phelan!!!

Coming LIVE to Cooper on March 15, 2016!

Introducing award winning illustrator Matt Phelan!

Every year, we are so excited to work with the JF Cooper PTA to create an incredible experience by inviting an Author or Illustrator to hang out with our students for a day! This special opportunity makes books come to life for our students, and really teaches our students to reach for their dreams!

I am so looking forward to meeting Matt Phelan and introducing him to our students! His artwork and illustration techniques are so profound and amazing - we are truly looking forward to an amazing day!
