Northwestern Elementary School students learned about illustrating books during a recent visit from author and illustrator Marty Kelley.

“In order to write a good book, you must come up with amazing ideas,” Kelley said. “Your ideas can come from places you have been, things you do, such as horseback riding, from another book you have read or from your own imagination.

“Your ideas can come from events happening in your own lives.”

Kelley, who has been drawing for 20 years, said he likes to draw and often gets ideas from a drawing he has created.
