Students ENTERING grades 2-7 are able to register for the Author Illustrator Enrichment Program. The program will be run by author, illustrator, and local teacher Janelle Vargo. Janelle has been an Intervention Specialist since 2008. She has K-12 licensure, Reading Endorsement, and Masters Degree from Wright State University. She has been published in the ASCD, interviewed in eSchool News and Language Magazine, created lessons for WonderGrove Learn, wrote and illustrated Little Suzie, and illustrated Saving Gideon.
Janelle has been teaching art classes for over 10 years, first for Greenville Council on Rural Services, and now through Two Birds LLC in Tipp City.
This program will be held at 475 South First St. Tipp City, and courses are limited to the first 10 students per series who register and pay 1/2 upon registration.
Student authors will be guided through a collaborative process of writing, revising, and editing during the first hour of each day. The second hour of the program will focus on artwork and illustrations. Each program series will focus on different techniques and mediums to ensure that the published book, although collaborative, has an attractive flow. Speaking of publishing… YES! These books will be printed and published! Each student who completes the program will receive 10 copies of their book. Student authors will be invited to attend the Two Birds Book Sale in the fall where they will have their own book sale and signing. Students will be provided invitations for friends and family. Students who sign and sell their books will keep their money!
