Improve the chances of your picture book, novel or nonfiction book being used by teachers in the classroom by creating a teacher’s guide that is aligned with Common Core State Standards. By the end of this two-part hands-on workshop, you will walk away with an outline for your teacher’s guide, a practical art activity related to your book, a list of art teachers world-wide, steps for creating a photo-tutorial and resources lists.
Instructors: Charice Guerra, curriculum coordinator, inservice coach and part-time lecturer at CSUSI, and Patty Palmer, art teacher and director at www.DeepSpaceSparkle.com

Join us for a SketchCrawl at the Santa Barbara Zoo. It will be an opportunity to meet others with similar interests, develop a new portfolio piece, and work directly in the field. What’s a SketchCrawl? It’s a drawing (and/or journaling) marathon in which you roam (or crawl) from location to location.
Meet at the Zoo entrance at 10 a.m. From there, you will be free to work alone or in small groups.
Bring a bag lunch and we’ll all meet up again at 12 noon to eat and share work. Both illustrators and writers are welcome. So, come join the fun!
Participation in the event is free, but parking and sundry admissions are the responsibility of the participants.
