The start of a new year means resolutions and goals for the coming year. Common resolutions include eating better, exercising more, and saving money. What if your resolution for 2021 was to be more creative? You could hit pause on all of the busy day-to-day activities and embrace imagination and play. 

EVPL is kicking off the new year with a focus on one area of creativity: drawing. Weekly video tutorials will be shared to get you started on drawing, plus we will provide Watercolor Take and Make kits starting January 11. 

We hope that you will join us as we celebrate illustration in children’s literature by participating in our annual Mock Caldecott program on Thursday, January 21 at 9:00 am via Zoom. Programs and activities will focus around illustration and drawing, but we hope it sparks your imagination to explore other creative outlets.
