"DRAW ME IN" another Arts Cool program, sponsored by the Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council was a big success with over 35 children in grades 2 through 5 participating. The program consists of children writing their own book and also Illustrating it. They all gathered at the Jodie McCallum Fine Art Gallery in Marblehead, OH. Jodie and her Husband, Grant were on hand to walk the children through the various steps of creating a children's book. Several of the children had ideas as to what their book was going to be about, while others gathered around Jodie after the session, to bounce their ideas off of her.
All of the art supplies, for each child, were available Free, by the Arts Council for the "DRAW ME IN" program.
Carol Morgan, the chairperson of this program, has also arranged a "Meet the Authors & Illustrators" on Monday, August 24th at 7:00pm at the Ida Rupp Library, in Port Clinton.

Punch and cookies will be available - so stop on down and meet some of the areas new literary stars.
