Create art and a book with acclaimed children's book illustrator R. Gregory Christie!

Great for families with elementary-aged children!

R. Gregory Christie will guide families in the creation of a children's book, while teaching some art and book-binding techniques. There will be supplies for 25 books. Families or groups may work together to create one book. Please register only one person from the group, if you plan on working together.

He is an NAACP Image Award winner and was the artist for the United Postal Services's "Kwanzaa Stamp" in 2013.
