Celebrate summer at Lighthouse ArtCenter's School's Out for Summer Event. Children can view original best-selling children's book illustrations, enjoy storytime, a tea party, a craft station, and create in our Makerspace, which features animation software and 3D printers.
Storytimes will be held at 1:30 pm and 2:30 pm. The event is free to the public at Lighthouse ArtCenter's Gallery located at 373 Tequesta Drive, Tequesta, FL 33469
The ArtCenter's Schorr Gallery is exhibiting original illustrations from the bestselling "Fancy Nancy" children's book series by Robin Priess Glasser, original illustrations from two of author/illustrator Roxie Munro's latest award-winning children's books, Breadwig Ballinger's playful plastic 3D Faulty Dogs, and a Makerspace.
Storytime includes a story from the "Fancy Nancy" book series by author Jane O'Connor and illustrator Robin Priess Glasser. The first "Fancy Nancy" book was published in 2005 and spent nearly 100 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list. With over 80 books, this endearing children's series has sold over 40 million copies worldwide. The series' main character, Nancy, is known for her fabulous and fancy sense of style, admirable self-confidence, and use of big fancy words. After storytime, kids are invited to enjoy tea and a craft where they can make their own fancy hats and take photos in front of the original illustrations on exhibit by Robin Priess Glasser.
Also included in storytime are books by author/illustrator Roxie Munro. Munro has written and illustrated more than 45 award-winning nonfiction and concept children's books and has illustrated 14 New Yorker magazine covers. On exhibition are her original illustrations from "Dive In" and "Anteaters, Bats and Boas" and a selection of her New Yorker cover illustrations.
