Gaston County Public Library

Read and Draw

Read and Draw










The Read and Draw program series is a special collaboration between the Dallas Branch Library and the Gaston County Museum of Art and History that combines storytelling with live art.

Dallas Branch Supervisor Christine McGovern (Miss Chrissie) reads a story, and at the same time, Gaston County Museum Education Manager Alexander Brooks (Mister Alex) draws or paints a picture related to the story. Each episode of Read and Draw also includes printable activity sheets.

Join the fun! All of the episodes from the Read and Draw program series are linked below, along with their activity sheets.
