So excited! The MAZZA is coming to the Saline District Library, Saline, Michigan. The MAZZA Museum houses “the world’s first and most diverse collection of original artwork by children’s book illustrators. Through these select pieces you will encounter the creative processes behind picture book art — cover work, color separations, editorial notes on preliminaries, character development sketches, preparatory storyboards, and much more.”
June 3rd through Aug. 26th. Make it a destination this summer!
I’m certainly going!
(And the library itself is a small gem.)
I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be co-teaching the writing strand at the MAZZA Museum Summer Conference this year. FYI: the Mazza Museum is the largest museum of original artwork by children’s book illustrators in the world. The museum’s goal is to promote literacy and enrich the lives of all people through the art of children’s literature. And it’s in Findlay, Ohio.
I’d love to see a lot of writers there, as well. We writers learn so much from how illustrators envision and execute the art of picture books. The link for the conference: MAZZA Museum Summer Conference, 2015
