Our Guest Artist for June is Kara Kramer!

Kara is one of my favorite people and artists! She has taught two awesome classes with us and has recently been exploding on the children’s book scene with four picture books to her name, including new picture book, Erno Rubik and His Magic Cube (authored by Kerry Aradhya and illustrated by Kara) that will be released tomorrow! (We get to celebrate with her on the book-release day!)

The Zoom Session will last 1.5 hours. Kara and I will talk for a bit, and then Kara will show us two creative exercises. Then, we will work together in community where can continue your “Kara” explorations or work on your own creative projects. At the end of the session, there will be time for sharing and questions! You will be making…

Idea-Generating Exercises

Here are the supplies to bring to our Work Session:

• Gather a piece of string, a bent paper clip, cut rubber band or some other small objects, including collage paper bits cut into various small shapes.
• some paper (can be your sketchbook, loose paper or watercolor paper)

• your favorite pen
• your smartphone camera or similar

(Note: Please don’t worry if you don’t have the exact supplies… just come as you are and with what you have!)
