Hi, I am in 4 West. This week, author Jason Chin came to our school to teach us about his writing process. He showed us different steps of how he draws and how he writes. One thing that stood out to me is that he starts with a thumbnail sketch, which is a mini drawing. As he gradually makes it bigger he will change it slightly and make sure he is proud of the final product. His most recent book, Grand Canyon, won the Caldecott Honor and it only took him 45 drafts! Jason Chin said, “never turn in something you aren’t proud of”. Thank you for listening and have an artistic Friday!
