    Wise Words:
    From author-illustrators…

    Each child is an individual and should be encouraged to express herself in her own way. If you provide your children with simple art supplies and sit at the table and draw with them, if you read books together and ask them to tell you a story, they will understand that you value who they are and the particular way they express what they’re curious about. I always loved to draw, since I was a young boy. And I still recall the sunlit room and colorful paints of my first-grade classroom and the warm encouragement of my teacher… –Eric Carle

    When kids want to know how they can be an artist or a writer, I say start by having your own spot. It doesn’t have to be large or complex, just a place that is quiet and conducive to thinking. If they have their place and supplies all ready, ideas will come out when they’re ready. Just making materials available is enough. Wrapping paper, sticks, leaves, seeds: Art supplies are really all around us. –Lois Ehlert

    I think, especially for children, pictures are very immediate, and they understand how pictures tell a story before they understand how words tell a story. It’s a nice entrance into the whole process of storytelling. –Michael Chesworth

    Hi Everyone,

    Next week’s show is shaping up to be GREAT. We’re going to be talking about art, playing music about art, reading stories about art and talking with real live artists. We’ll also have PRIZES to give to give away, so TUNE IN, PHONE IN!

    Emperor's Second Hand Clothes
    We have a phone interview set up with illustrator Josee Bisaillon, who was recently nominated for the Governor General’s award for illustrations (which is a pretty big deal). She’ll be talking about how she became an illustrator, what she thinks about when she draws and why she loves being an artist.

    Creativity Greenhouse
    We’re also happy to welcome Kate Reilly from the Creativity Greenhouse, a Children’s Fine Art Studio and Gallery in Guelph, offering art classes for ages 18 months to 15+. Kate will be talking about the different workshops offered, the birthday parties they host, and their new studio.

    It’s also Fair November this weekend. We’re arranging for interviews with some of the vendors who sell kid’s stuff…

    Confirmed so far…
