Splatter, rip, spill, tear . . . OOPS! With his signature style and oomph, children’s book author-illustrator Barney Saltzberg first showed kids that mistakes can be turned into something beautiful with his bestselling book Beautiful Oops! Now he’s back with My Book of Beautiful Oops!—an interactive journal for young artists that challenges them to turn smears, tears, stains, scribbles, and more into creative masterpieces.
Join us for a morning of singing, drawing, reading, and fun as Barney shares behind-the-scenes stories of his work as a children’s author and illustrator and his own experience with turning OOPS into awesome! Free Oops! art templates designed by Barney will be available for all young artists to inspire creative art making at home.
A book signing will follow the presentation; copies of the book will be for sale in the DMA Store.
Admission to the event is FREE, but we recommend you reserve your free tickets in advance. Please reserve a ticket for each adult and child in your party.
