Want to learn how children’s book authors and illustrators draw themselves and spotlight other communities in their art? Join Embrace Race on February 23 for their online event, “Drawing Across the Color Line with Kids.”
This video premiere event will feature three award-winning children’s authors/illustrators, including Grace Lin (A Big Mooncake for Little Star), Oge Mora (Saturday), and Yuyi Morales (Dreamers). They will talk to each other about their own evolutions, from early childhood to today, in representing people who look like them. They draw each other, each across a color line, and have suggestions for how adults can support kids to use drawing as a tool for seeing and honoring others. After the video, the artists will answer participant questions.
