Into the Arts Festival

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of visiting Juniper Park Elementary School in Westfield, MA. After teaching the students a little bit about illustration, children's books, and storytelling, I provided the start of a story, which the students completed with their own ideas and illustrations. This weekend, their artwork, along with many other young, talented artists in Westfield, will be on display at the 8th annual Into the Arts festival held at Westfield Vocational Technical High School. The event will take place on both Saturday and Sunday. Below are some details:

Westfield Vocational Technical High School

If you can, stop by, partake in the festivities, and celebrate Westfield's artistic talents! I hope to see you there!

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful New Year! Last year was an amazing journey! From attending the 13th Annual SCBWI Winter Conference in New York City in January to spending time at the NESCBWI regional conference in Springfield, MA, I had the opportunity to meet so many incredibly talented writers, illustrators, agents, editors, and art directors.
With 2013 already upon us, I have a lot of big changes and announcements in store. One of the biggest is the update of The AP Sabourin Studio website. With an expanding portfolio of work, the need to add some new features and sections to the site, and the importance of updating the design, coding, and responsiveness of the site, I've found it necessary to begin work on a new website.  As the new site develops, I'll post updates.
Last year, I began taking classes in web design. So, I'll also be putting up some more design related work as well.
May everyone have an exciting (and lucky) 2013!
