Ezra Jack Keats Foundation

Introducing Brockway Memorial Library’s Youth Program, “The Art of Ezra Jack Keats”, an enriching arts-based program that will introduce the various art mediums Keats’ used in his children’s books including: pencil drawing, brush and sponge painting, marbling and texture techniques, and collage.


Ezra Jack Keats (1916-1983), children’s author and illustrator, was a pioneer in American children’s literature. He wanted no child to be an outsider. “If we could see each other exactly as the other is,” he wrote, “this would be a different world.”
