Virtual Author Visit

  • book jackets


    In this virtual visit for students in grades 3, 4, and 5, Mr. Soentpiet treated students and staff to a tour of his incredible studio.  We saw how his illustrations begin with pencil sketches and progress through a multi-step process of painting. Students viewed many brushes, paints, and paint palettes used to create his award-winning illustrations.  Mr. Soentpiet left us with the advice that his mother gave him as a boy: work hard, follow your dreams, and believe in yourself!
