Think you can't draw? Oh yes you can! 

Join children's authors Marie Louise Fitzpatrick and Michael Emberley for readings from and draw alongs based on their recent books. The New Kid by Marie Louise Fitzpatrick is about that delicate and sometimes difficult moment when we try to make friends, and a little girl with a creative response to being teased. Join Marie-Louise to learn how to draw some of the animals we meet in the story. 

Barbara Bottner & Michael Emberley's Priscilla Gorilla is all about Priscilla who loves gorillas. So much so that she wants to be one. She dances like them, eats like them, and wears her gorilla costume 24/7! There are so many things to love about gorillas, but what Priscilla loves best is how they seem to always get their way. Expect a few surprises during this hour long workshop and be prepared to roll your sleeves up! 

Family session, ALL ages welcome.
