Drawing is a fundamental means of expression. Our guest artist Rob Shepperson does it every day. He will lead you on a journey of seeing and mark making.
Using pencils, charcoal and natural light available through the huge old windows at the 1731 Meeting House, you will be drawing from objects and the immediate world around us.
Shepperson is an acclaimed illustrator, children’s book author, painter and muralist. His editorial work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, not to mention Highlights for Children.
The picture book The Sandman, which he wrote and illustrated, and The Memory Bank, a collaboration with the writer Carolyn Coman have reached millions of young readers. A special edition of the picture book Can I Just Take A Nap? was attached to 5,000,000 Cheerios boxes.
