Story Book Reading with CBIG at Aldrich Arts Street Fair

The Children's Book Illustrators Guild was invited to participate in a street fair event hosted by Aldrich Arts Collaborative, a non-profit center that has a gallery space and also has classes for kids. Their summer mural class culminated in this street fair with local artists as well as an unveiling of the mural which is on the side of the building at 814 W 36th St. It was a very fun event for the CBIG artists that attended; Franklin Haws, Shawn McCann and myself. I did some facepainting which was very fun for both the kids and I, (despite the 100 degree heat.) Also each of us did a session of story book reading of our books that we had illustrated. See the videos/pictures below. Also we got to hear stories for the kids that had painted the mural. It was a great event overall and I hope to work with Aldrich Arts again soon.
