Steve Gray Illustrator School Visits

Steve's school visit is the type of inspiring presentation that your students

will be talking about long after he has gone.

AN EXCITING INTER-ACTIVE PRESENTATION!

Steve Gray has created an exciting inter-active presentation that shows students how a children's picture book is illustrated from rough pencil sketches to the final slick full-color book that they would find on the shelf of their local bookstore or library. In his presentation Steve gives the students a hands-on, follow-along, drawing lesson. His presentations usually given at school assemblies in large groups are designed to build confidence and encourage students to feel positive about them-selves when pursuing creative endeavors. Teachers then build on Steve's presentation using it as a springboard for art and literature appreciation and to stimulate reading and creative writing in their classrooms.

His clients included McDonalds, Carl's Jr., Pizza Hut, Baskin Robbins, Disney, Knott's Berry Farm, Warner Brothers, K-Swiss and American Express to name a few.
