Ferro Arts Series presents: MEET THE ILLUSTRATORS: CHUCK FISCHER AND HENRY COLE!
Learn what it’s like to be a professional illustrator!
The program will include a reception where the guests can purchase books to have autographed and chat with the illustrators. At the reception, we will have art activities where the children can make their own booklets and bookmarks. Featured author/illustrators will include award-winning author/illustrator Henry Cole, and pop-up book artist and illustrator, Chuck Fischer.
About Henry Cole: Educational and interactive, Henry Cole's presentations dazzle audiences of all ages. His clever wit, theatrical expressions and remarkable ability to draw keep students laughing and engaged. Cole encourages students to develop their individual talents, using his own experience, marked by patience and perseverance, as an example. The mystery behind writing and illustrating your own book unfolds as Cole outlines the process from concept to printing press, using examples of his own work. Cole's delightful sense of humor and artistic talents inspire and entertain audiences. His performances are a treat!
