Cozy up with a great story this winter! In this special festival at the Museum, meet some of the illustrators who have their work on display in our Picture This: The Art of Children’s Books.  Enjoy a mug of hot chocolate, join us for read-alouds, book-signings and find out how our illustrators create their artwork. Create your own winter landscape collage using our special papers, inspired by the work of Eric Carle, to fill with characters and a story of your own. Using repurposed fabric, stencils and special markers, design a tote bag to use for your library books all winter long.  Only picture books purchased on site will be autographed by illustrators. Receive a free special edition festival poster with the purchase of your first book.
