Gigi the Giraffe (sponsored by Richmond Hill’s 2016 Community & Cultural grant) is participating in Richmond Hill’s Cultural Summit today at The Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts. Tickets are complimentary. Hope to see you there. Featured in picture–Mayor Dave Barrow.
The highlight of the 2016 CANSCAIP Packaging Your Imagination Conference was meeting keynote speaker Professor Emeritus David Booth of The Ontario Institute for Studies of Education (OISE) of The University of Toronto. He said, my book, “is a perfect pattern book.”
Joel Sutherland, Children’s & Youth Services Librarian at Georgina Public Libraries & I at CANSCAIP meeting where he delivered an EXCELLENT presentation on his path to publishing.
Here’s a picture of my new sculpture. Her name is Gigi and she is based on the image of the giraffe from my book titled, “We Are Colourful Friends”.
THANK YOU to all my colourful friends at the Richmond Hill’s Community & Cultural department for your generous grant. Your support made it possible to bring Gigi to life.
There are 11 characters in my book and I have completed 7 sculptures. Once I complete the other 4 sculptures my goal is to have an exhibition at The Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts.
If booking a JK/SK interactive workshop at your school or library you can now choose to have Gigi the pink giraffe visit your class instead of Ruby the red flamingo.
Finally, thank you to everyone that helped me pick Gigi’s name. I think it really suits her.
