School Visits are fun. The students love seeing what grown-ups do for work. Today I visited Mrs. Brayman's art class to talk to the students about how to use symbolism in their artwork. I showed them samples of my own work and how I use objects, color schemes and texture as some of the ways to convey a message or meaning in my work. In the book I am holding, Great Group Skits, I use symbolism in each of the chapter head illustrations to show what the title of that chapter is about. The students were inspired to take that knowledge and use it in their own illustrated book project.
