Kevin tells stories - through his books - about the importance of being curious AND masking mistakes (ie. being brave enough to make mistakes). No one gets better at anything without these skills - and making mistakes IS a skill.

Don't worry - he doesn't bore the kids with extended readings from his books - mostly it's stories ranging from what farting contests can teach us about sports and art (true story) to how being brave really means messing up. All. The. Time.

Then Kevin will lead a quick cartooning class, with some specific tips to help budding artists loosen up the way they draw, and think about how they draw.

All they'll need is an active imagination and their preferred media for drawing.
