Pat Schories

Pat Schories is the author/illustrator of the wordless Jack books and illustrator of the popular Biscuit beginning readers. She especially enjoys presenting to the very youngest of students, and has prepared a school program for grades K-1. She will talk about how a book illustrator does his job and show the children sketches, book dummies, and finished art. Her slide presentation includes several complete stories of both BISCUIT and JACK as well as pictures of her studio, her models, and her art supplies. Pat concludes with sketching, and answering any questions the students may have. In the course of a school day, she will present up to four 45-minute presentations. Based in the New York metropolitan area, Pat is available for school programs in the Northeast.
