Children’s Book Making & Storytelling through Dance

Saturday, June 29, 10 am - 12 pm

Ages 4 - 11

Using sketches, dummy books, and original paintings, Kevin Hawkes will walk children through his creative process for illustrating a picture book, including a demonstration of drawing, technique, and story building. Lita and Kevin Giddins will use dance and movement to make the stories in Hawkes’ books come alive. Kids will mimic shapes and characters and will learn how the human body can be a source of storytelling.

KEVIN HAWKES is the author/illustrator of over 50 acclaimed picture and chapter books, including the New York Times best sellers Library Lion and Weslandia.

LITA AND KEVIN GIDDINS are professional, Utah-based dancers and performers with involvement in the recording, commercial, film, and musical theater industries.
