Free Webinars

One Brave Dot - Tues., 10/1, 11 AM PT

One Brave Dot

"I just can't draw." These words, uttered by a 1st grader nearly twenty years ago, inspired award-winning and best-selling author/illustrator, Peter H. Reynolds from FableVision Learning to urge all of us to “make our mark” bravely. While his book, “The Dot” (which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year) is about art and a great art teacher, the book is ultimately a metaphor for being brave enough to take that first brave step and see where it takes us. Join Peter in this FREE webinar as he shares a a sneak peek of his upcoming book, "Be You," which is a joyful reminder of the ways every child is unique and special and more.
