Students Dare to Draw 3D at Albany Avenue Elementary School

Students at Albany Avenue Elementary School were treated to a hands-on assembly with Emmy Award winning illustrator and host of PBS Imagination Station, Mark Kistler, who taught them how to draw 3-D cartoons geared to their grade-level.

The excited students arrived in Heritage Hall, equipped with paper, pencil and a clipboard. As a group, they sat on the floor, drawing alongside Mr. Kistler, who used a document camera and computer-projected animation to guide them step-by-step. While he taught them to draw, he entertained them with stories and educated them on the importance of bringing imagination and creativity into their daily lives.

This was the first time the Dare to Draw 3-D assembly was held at the district— it was sponsored by the Albany Avenue PTA.
