School Talks and Presentations
Invite Dorothia to come visit your school!

Her presentations will take students through the process of creating picture books from beginning to end!

She will answer the big question that kids want to know when they look at picture books:
—"How did you do that?"

From the time of receiving the manuscript in the mail, she will take kids through the process
of illustrating a book.
By demonstrating how "ideas turn into scribbles", "scribbles into sketches",
"sketches into final drawings", "drawings into final paintings,
the students will gain a new understanding of how picture books are created.
