Students from Sunset Elementary watched with wide eyes and excited faces as artist Brad Sneed worked his magic on a large, blank white sheet of paper, bringing a drawing to life in front of them.
Sneed spoke at the school Wednesday morning and shared with students how he got his start as a book illustrator. 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.
