Youth Art Month - Art Show - Millburn, NJ

This was a nicely done video of a YAM show in Millburn, NJ last year.

I am digging around for all things "Youth Art Month."  With all the cuts in funding to the arts right now, I am getting a bit feverish about advocacy, and trying to find some ideas that fit me.

Youth Art Month - Illustrator - Robert Sabuda

Ooooooooooooh la la!!!!!!!   As a paper artist, I just ADORE Robert Sabuda.  I look at his pop ups and am totally astounded at how his paper sculptures can fold up with such ease.  Here's another interview at "Meet Me At the Corner.org."

Here's the link:  http://www.meetmeatthecorner.org/episodes/robert-sabuda-pop-up-bookshttp://www.meetmeatthecorner.org/episodes/robert-sabuda-pop-up-books

Youth Art Month - Illustrator - Lori Mitchell

Here's a great video for Youth Art Month.  It is an interview with Lori Mitchell and she talks about her life as a children's book illustrator.   CLICK HERE:  Lori Mitchell.....The website is "Meet me at the Corner.org".

GASP! Amazing Site with Canadian Videos

SAllgood just sent me a link to a video from the National Film Board of Canada.  My jaw dropped at seeing what I am missing there!  Check this site out:  National Film Board of Canada.

Thanks, Stephanie!

Storyline Online

I had forgotten about Storyline Online.  It is a site with children's books read by members of the Screen Actor's Guild.  It's a really excellent resource.

I am posting this one because it has the hand motions for "skinamarinky dinky do." This is more for me to watch and remember than for the kids to watch.
