David Hyde Costello Artist Residency

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

2:00 PM- 4:00 PM

Join us during the week of February 18 - 21 as we create our own picture book with local children's book author/illustrator David Hyde Costello.

At the start of the week on February 18th 10:00-11:00 am, David will lead a brainstorming session with an audience of young co-creators to generate a brand new story. Then he’ll set up a studio space in the library where you can observe his process as he revises the story text and creates the final sketches:
Tuesday February 18th 11:00am-12:00 pm in the Jones Library Atrium
Wednesday February 19th 2:00pm- 4:00pm
Thursday February 20th 6:00pm- 8:00pm
At the end of the week, on Friday February 21st at 10:00 am, David will present the finished work in the Woodbury Room.
