Five Authorstrators Every Preschooler Should Know

Preschool • Ages 3 to 5

August 28 to September 1 (five mornings)

9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

$290 + GST

Another staple in the Lyceum’s summer schedule, this camp will arm your preschooler with stories from the most influential children’s authors/illustrators. We’ll cover everyone from Oliver Jeffers to Mo Willems, Julia Donaldson to Linda Bailey, with Christianne highlighting their different styles and artistic sensibilities. We’ll take the style of their illustrations and explore what defines each authorstrator and then campers will try their hand at creating images in the same style. Campers will get to decide which style resonates with them, as they leave at the end of the week ready to practice from home. 


Whether your child identifies with the stick-legged creatures of Oliver Jeffers or the collage images of Eric Carle, they will feed a love of story (both text and image)


Exposing your child to timeless classics and introducing new names into their canon is an investment now that will magnify rewards in the years to come.
