The Arts in Basic Curriculum (ABC) Project provides leadership to achieve high-quality, comprehensive arts education (dance, music, media arts, theatre, visual arts and creative writing) for all students in South Carolina.

Creating with Mr. Dearybury

Children’s Literature is a special art form blending perfectly woven words and beautifully created pictures. Reading the author’s story combined with the illustrator's images, readers can’t help but to dream, imagine, and create. In this 8 video series, join author, illustrator, and educator Jed Dearybury as he walks us through some of his favorite picture books and how they inspire him to make art. Hopefully you will start making too, because it is a great day to create!
