KIND WORDS:

“Vincent X. Kirsch is not only a gifted author and illustrator, he is also a gifted friend to hospitalized children. I bring authors and illustrators into pediatric hospital settings to share their work through Project Sunshine. Vincent is always willing to commit wholeheartedly to these visits. The children love his kind and caring sharing of his beautiful books and puppet theater. His humor, grace and talent also make him a coveted volunteer.”

 “Vincent’s visit to our Second Grade art class was a delectable treat. He delighted our students with anecdotes about his recent trip to India, where his color palette and imagination were enhanced by ancient deities, sacred cows, and red carrots, to name a few.   The class was also captivated by descriptions of Vincent’s artistic process. It was extremely beneficial for our students to see how Vincent channels his raw creativity into the whimsical characters that populate both his picture books and toy theaters. Brentwood School is so fortunate to have spent time with Vincent X. Kirsch.”

“Vincent X. Kirsch is an author and illustrator that greatly appeals to the hearts and minds of children!  He visited my school, Mt. Kisco Elementary, to the delight of our students.  Vince prepared a wonderful presentation that highlighted who he is as an artist.  Vince shared photos of his studio, photos of inspiration from his travels, many character sketches and the process for creating his books.  The students were highly engaged, and especially enjoyed watching Vince draw a character before their eyes!  The students learned the process that an artist and writer goes through to create picture books, and they loved meeting Vince and learning more about how all of his characters and stories had evolved!  Vince signed copies of his books that many children had ordered in advance, and they enjoyed having this special connection to him and a memory of his visit.”
