After much anticipation, the 2 week artist residency that I will be doing at the Circle of Nations school in Wahpeton, North Dakota is about to begin. After packing up what seemed like my entire studio, I trudged along, rear end practically scraping along the way and am now ready for the classes to begin. I am really excited to see what the 106 students I will be working with come up with for their project. As soon as I can post images from it I definitely will. The focus of the residency is with children’s book Illustration and writing. I will be working with the kids on the illustration side and Lise Erdrich will be working with them on the writing side. The fun that comes from this venture will be produced in a wonder book that is still in the works and scope, depending on how creative the kids get:)
The best part is that each kid is going to be given their own sketch book and pencil set. Here’s hoping they are filled with many great images!
