Emilie Boon has written and illustrated more than twenty books for young children and is best known for her beguiling depictions of animal characters. Her interactive presentation will include a short talk interspersed with numerous examples of her artwork, a reading from one of her books, and a drawing demonstration. Then, in a hands-on project, the students are given a simple accordion book to illustrate using Emilie’s signature technique, crayon and watercolor.

The Creative Arts and Sciences Committee (CASC) implements curricular-related programs at elementary and middle schools in Newton. The PTOs at each school fund these programs. The programs align with Newton curricula, the Massachusetts’ curricular frameworks, system-wide goals, and core values. Programs enhance Art, English/ Language Arts, History, Social Studies, Music, Physical Education, and Science curricula.
