The event has passed, but can be viewed here:

Join the renown bookmaking team, Mary GrandPré and Barb Rosenstock, as they speak with Patty Palmer, veteran art educator and CEO of the enormously popular site for art educators, Deep Space Sparkle, for a conversation delving into process and celebrating the power of using art biographies in the art room.

This will be a live event and time will be given at the end for questions for Mary, Barb and Patty.

Mary GrandPré began her career as an illustrator. The path that led her to that point started with her education at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Her passion for light, color, drawing and design came together in evocative paintings, using a variety of mediums. Much of her focus was creating paintings for numerous picture books and book covers. While she has illustrated over 20 picture books and been awarded the Caldecott Honor for THE NOISY PAINTBOX, she is perhaps best known for her illustrations on the Harry Potter books. Mary has also worked as the conceptual artist on Dreamwork’s animated film “Antz” and on Blue Sky Studios’ animated film “Ice Age”.

Barb Rosenstock likes true stories about real people. She is the author of nonfiction and historical fiction children’s books that combine deep research and playful language to bring history to life. Her book, THE NOISY PAINTBOX, illustrated by Mary Grandpré, received a Caldecott Honor in 2015. Other awards include an Orbis Pictus Honor, a Sydney Taylor Honor and the California Library Association Beatty Award as well as numerous national and state recognitions. Barb loves sharing stories and inspiring students in schools and libraries across the country.

Patty Palmer is a veteran elementary art educator turned entrepreneur and CEO of the enormously successful online resource for art teachers and parents, Deep Space Sparkle (DSS). DSS is a deep, sparkly well of incredibleness. Patty is also the author of the book DRAW, PAINT, SPARKLE Creative Projects from an Elementary Art Teacher and behind the podcast Art Made Easy.
