Sneed grew up in the Newton area and has illustrated a wide variety of books, including “Cock-a-doodle-doo, Creak, Pop-pop, Moo”; “Mr. President Goes to School”; and “Grandpa’s Song.”Sneed showed the students how he goes through the creative process, starting with a rough sketch and ending with a polished piece of artwork.
