Aaron Renier: 2022 Creator-in-Residence

AARON RENIER

2022 Creator-in-Residence

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Aaron Renier is the author of three graphic novels for younger readers; Spiral-Bound, Walker Bean, and Walker Bean and the Knights of the Waxing Moon and has also illustrated books for children by Daniel Pinkwater and Dave Eggers amongst others. He is the recipient of the Eisner award in 2006 for talent deserving of wider recognition, and was an inaugural resident for the Sendak Fellowship. He lives and works in Green Bay Wisconsin.

 

ABOUT THE RESIDENCY:

The Creator-in-Residence program gives local makers and artists an opportunity to share their work with others by displaying their art and teaching workshops for the public. Aaron looks forward to connecting with kids, teens, adults, and the community of artists in our area. Advocating for art in public is something he feels very passionate about. During his residency, Aaron will be teaching a series of workshops for kids, teens, and adults on drawing and comics, and publishing through a unique format called “zines.”  His art work will be on display in our gallery space in the non-fiction area.

The Creator-in-Residence program is made possible thanks to our community partner and sponsor, The Bank of Kaukauna, an active supporter of local arts and culture programs and initiatives in our community.
