Illustrator Steve Gray visited Hillsides to teach the children how to illustrate a cartoon from his book, “An Ant Who Walked from New York to L.A.” His illustrations are creative, unique, and humorous. The video shows how his character wanted to pursue his dream to be a musician in a band. Along his travels to iconic places, he picks up relatives and friends to be in his band.
Enrichment activities like these help children explore their creativity, find their artistic talent, and develop social skills in a relaxing and fun environment. Many thanks to Steve Gray for his time to help Hillsides children illustrate a character that is symbolic of pursuing your dream and finding family in places you never thought to look before.
