About this program
Students will explore the picture book This is the Boat that Ben Built through the lens of a reader, writer, scientist, and artist. They’ll discover how the author and illustrator work together to create a picture book, and how the animals of the northern river ecosystem are interconnected in the story and real world. The presentation will begin with an overview of Jen’s early artistic development and creative process, and end with a Q&A period.
One-hour session*: $375 + HST
