Starry Night

Vincent Can't Sleep

A gorgeous, lyrical picture-book biography of Vincent van Gogh by the Caldecott Honor team.
 
Vincent van Gogh often found himself unable to sleep and wandered under starlit skies. Those nighttime experiences provided the inspiration for many of his paintings, including his most famous, The Starry Night. Van Gogh sold only one painting in his lifetime—but he continued to pursue his unique vision, and ultimately became one of the most beloved artists of all time.

Art Study - Jan Brett

 

With over thirty four million books in print, Jan Brett is one of the nation's foremost author illustrators of children's books. Jan lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts, close to where she grew up. 

As a child, Jan Brett decided to be an illustrator and spent many hours reading and drawing. She says, "I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I'm drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real."

Christmas Fairy
 

Clara’s dream is to become a Christmas fairy, whose job it is to stay still atop the tree. But when Christmas lesson time rolls around at fairy school, things don’t go quite as planned. Clara’s so excited that she can’t possibly be still and quiet like a fairy should. Although she tries her best, at heart she’s still a wriggly, giggly chatterbox who likes nothing more than making people smile. But when it’s time for the big Christmas Show, it looks like that’s exactly the kind of fairy Santa needs to help him save the day. At last, Clara can put her talents to good use, and it soon becomes clear that there’s more than one way to be a Christmas fairy!

$35/2-hour workshop. Best suited for ages 6 and up. Adults/Grandparents are welcome to join in this class.
