Mazza Summer Study Tour

2010 Mazza State of Maine Summer Study Tour

I am excited to be part of the 15th Annual Mazza Summer Study Tour scheduled for the week of June 15-22, 2010.  Each year a different state is selected for the tour, and this year the great state of Maine is their destination of choice! The purpose of all of their tours is to visit artists in their studios/homes.  The tour group of approximately 40 participants will be spending the month of April and May researching, studying and otherwise preparing for all of the artist/authors they will be visiting. Most of the participants are docents and gallery hosts of the Mazza Museum (located in Findlay, Ohio) which houses thousands of pieces of international art from picture books. The group will be flying into Boston where they will board a bus to begin their week long tour of Maine while visiting with 15 Maine authors and illustrators.  I'm not quite sure how the tour bus will manage on our town's tiny back roads, but I'm excited and honored to have the group as guests in our home!

As a Mazza Enthusiast member, I am looking forward to visiting you and your studio during the upcoming Mazza Study Tour in June. Our group of teachers, librarians, and docents share an appreciation of children's picture books through the words, illustrations, and meeting their creator. So, get ready for a fun group of Mazza Enthusiasts members who are looking forward to meeting you!
