Delve into the world of picture book art through the process of Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS). Over six weeks, participants will be introduced to the basic elements of VTS and led through a series of group discussions around select works of picture book art with IRW Director of School Programs Alison Johnson.

Alison will share ideas for using picture books as springboards for conversational learning for all ages and introduce several quality books each week. This program is great for parents, grandparents, educators, librarians and anyone interested in learning more about the power of picture book art.

The Art of the Picture Book will meet 4-5 p.m. on Thursdays from April 22-May 27. While we encourage participants to join in all six sessions, you may drop in for any of the sessions.
