The Mazza Summer Conference is a three-day conference where teachers, librarians, and book lovers delight in educational and engaging presentations from some of the top authors and illustrators in the picture book industry. Conference attendees can also choose from daily breakout sessions that are led by in-service teachers and librarians offering techniques for using picture books in fun, educational ways.
This year’s theme is “Flip It!” We will be flipping, changing, and rearranging the media process used on already created works of art to come up with something new and unique. Creativity, imagination and innovation collide at Young Artist Workshop 2020!
Learn about the world of picture book art in a fun, exciting way with help from children’s book illustrators and our Mazza staff. Your young artist will create daily art projects using different techniques and media inspired by original illustrations from picture books. At the end of the week, you are invited to attend a reception to honor your young artist.
Open to children in grades 3 – 5 and grades 6 – 8 (as of fall 2020).
