I fondly remember my first Ed Emberley drawing book, Ed Emberley’s Big Purple Drawing Book. This book not only introduced me to the world of drawing, but also fed my imagination. From this book I spent hours drawing the images from this book and doing so over and over again. It is because of my experience and that of so many other adults and children that we are observing and sharing Ed Emberley Book Week from February 19-25, 2017.
The Ed Emberley Book Week is designed to encourage readers and artists of all ages to read, draw, and celebrate the gift of imagination and the many worlds created by Emberley and his books. The Ed Emberley Book Week is perfect for libraries and librarians, schools and teachers, parents and children all over the world to draw attention to the works of Ed Emberley. We’ve made the following Book Week tools available for your usage:
- A special week of programming at the Worcester Art Museum and the Worcester Public Library, in conjunction with KAHBAHBLOOOM: The Art and Storytelling of Ed Emberley, on view at WAM through April 9, 2017
