Picture books are an integral part of children’s lives. They teach simple concepts like letters and numbers, and also explore complex themes that help navigate the larger world. Step beyond the finished pages and glimpse into the practice of making art for children’s books in a unique teaching exhibit by award-winning illustrator Alice Ratterree. From preliminary sketches and research to the final artwork and bound book, follow the process of making art that tells a story.

The show is open to the public weekdays from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Guests should check in at the Visitor's Center and will be escorted to Lipscomb Gallery.
