Chris Van Dusen Arrives

Today, Chris Van Dusen came to our school to share his work.  He asked the kids if they'd like to sit home ALL day and JUST draw.  Of course, I wanted to raise my hand up and yell, "YES!!"  That would be a dream come true.

He showed the students paintings he has completed, read books, and even read us his BRAND NEW book.  He has illustrated the cover of LL Bean catalogs, packaging for toys, and our Maine lobster plate!

Pics to come soon.  It's saying I've reached my limit for pics.  YIKES!

Randy Riley's Really Big Hit


  1. Sounds like a fun day for your kiddos. I'll be waiting for you posts. I didn't realize that there was a limit for pictures on our blogs (I assume that is what you are referring to. :-)
