Geneviève Després

Grades K to 6

Author Talk/Drawing Workshop

Treat your bilingual students to one of Quebec’s most versatile creators. Després is the illustrator of more than 25 books for children, most recently Le petit chevalier qui affrontait les dragons, and C’est l’histoire d’un ours. In this hands-on workshop, designed for small groups of 30 students, Després will demonstrate how she takes a character from sketches to finished book, then lead students in drawing their own characters.
