Illustrator, author, and designer Scott Nash visits to share drawing tips and tricks. These workshops encourage kids and their grown-ups to experiment with unique sketching techniques—including some that Scott even uses when imagining and illustrating his books such as Shrunken Treasures. After the art-making, visit the exhibition Of Whales in Paint: Rockwell Kent's Moby-Dick to explore how various artists and writers across time have represented the iconic story of Moby-Dick.
