Second Steps students at William R. Davie have been studying the craft and style of Jan Brett’s writing and illustrations.

To complete the study, students painted using watercolors. Tutors worked alongside the students discussing details from the books they have been reading with the students.

The students are writing letters to Jan Brett. They are hopeful that she will write back. She is a famous author and illustrator. She has a website to explore at janbrett.com to enjoy videos of how she draws and gets ideas for her books. Students enjoyed exploring the website to have art lessons from Jan Brett’s videos.
