The Creative Arts & Sciences Committee has arranged for children’s book author and illustrator, Anna Alter, to bring an interactive presentation to Cabot’s 2nd graders.

Anna demonstrates the process of creating a children’s book in a way that students can easily understand and she invites children to participate as much as possible. She begins by showing childhood art projects, and discusses how they turned into the paintings she makes now. Anna talks about what inspired her to become an artist, with a focus on persevering at the things you love to do. Her presentation includes a start to finish explanation of how a book is made.
