FOR KIDS
In his general interactive school and library programs, Kevin takes the students through the process of creating a picture book from the basic idea to the finished product. The students will get an up close look at sketches, drawings, and finished illustrations from his books; and even artwork he created as a child! Kevin will explain what publishers do and how a book gets published. Students will learn the virtues of hard work, practice, and persistence to achieve their goals. They will also learn drawing and illustration skills as they do their own step-by-step drawings with Kevin! This program can be expanded into longer storyboard workshop formats and multiple visit programs.  Kevin has presented to preschoolers, elementary school kids, junior high/middle school kids, and high school students.

FOR ADULTS
Kevin's program can be adapted to address teachers, librarians, writers, artists, and basically anyone interested in the process of creating children's books or art in general.  Topics that can be discussed: getting published and the publishing process; creating art, murals, and illustrations; using his picture books and artwork in the classroom; creating storyboards to help the writing, illustrating, and reading process; and more!
Kevin is very committed to using his work to teach and inspire students of all ages.  He visits about 40-50 schools, libraries, and other venues each year.
