I visit school in greater New York area normally for book readings. But sometimes other activity comes up and I try new. This was one of those experiences. I was invited to participate in an interesting after school art program. I had so much fun with the director Catherine Shaw from Shadow Box Theater, her students (3rd graders at PS120) and their parents. I made a short video clip of the precious experience with them to share. Sorry, I don't have good skill to edit the video. But I hope you get a bit of feeling and enjoy it :) Thank you for watching!

I miss little ones I have met in class rooms through my book activities, each of them!!
Hello world, my name is Naoko Stoop. I am a Brooklyn, New York based selftaught illustrator. I create childhood images in my loft studio.
I’m trying to bring out the five-year old in people through my artwork. Because I believe that is the last moment before children start learning how complicated the world is, and that was when I once stopped drawing. It took me decades to come back to myself. Now? Here I am drawing everyday!
