A Visit From a Local Artist

Spike Wademan came to visit the kids that didn't go ice skating today. He talked to us about the importance of looking around us and noticing things. He shared his wonderful illustrations and even showed us them published in books. We got to do some paintings too! Thanks Spike for coming to visit :)
