The students — working with teachers Katie Markey, Bev Hurd and Lori Alamin — wrote and illustrated class books in the style of Keats, according to school officials.
“The Magic Snowflake,” written by the second-graders, shown at right top, and “The Alien and The Tree,” written by the third- and fourth-graders, shown at right bottom, are on display.
In addition, the award-winning picture book author and illustrator Duncan Tonatiuh recently visited the students in their art classroom to explore the process involved in illustrating and writing children’s books, according to school officials. Tonatiuh was chosen by the Akron Art Museum to collaborate on this exhibit and create a large-scale mural for the exhibit inspired by Keat’s work.
