Today is Art Day at the Gillispie School in La Jolla!
Here’s Joel teaching the First Graders three-point perspective…
If you know me, you know I’m no great speaker, but I definitely win the I-Try-Hard award today. My contribution was a simple demo of how pages are colored in the computer. I had a page prepped for some simple coloring, and a page that was done to show the finished product.
The Q and A part was fun. All the age groups had great questions. In the younger group one kid asked how many pages Joel had to draw and Joel told him he had to do 17 a month. Another kid enthusiastically raised his hand to share with us that he had 17 kids in his class! Thumbs up to stream of consciousness!
We brought copies of The Batman Strikes for everyone, and plenty of Grump stickers to go around, although I removed my website info because of my Sky Doll blog post (mature content).
The whole experience was more fun than I had expected!
Now, it’s back to work.
