Monthly Meeting: August 2023 – Let’s Play!

Created August 30, 2023 by Laurent Sewell

Texas: Austin

Our August Monthly Meeting took place upstairs at BookPeople, where members grouped together at long tables to partake in an artistic brainstorming session.

Laura Fisk, our Chapter Illustrator Coordinator and illustrator of SLEEPING BAGS TO S’MORES (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2020), presented members with clever prompts and fun exercises meant to inspire ideas and get the creative juices flowing. Illustrators and writers, alike, played games designed to warm-up the imagination using all the art supplies offered … multitudes of pens, paper, pastels, markers, and even Play-Doh! The result was a happy playtime, with an online “take-away,” reinforcing the importance of play for creatives.
