Claude's Hatchday Celebration

Livestreaming on YouTube and Facebook

Celebrate Claude's hatchday with a live reading and drawing lesson!

September 15 is a big day at the Academy. Why? It's the day our favorite albino American alligator hatched from his egg! Join us for a virtual celebration of Claude's 25th "hatchday," featuring a special treat for the birthday reptile, a reading of Claude: The True Story of a White Alligator from award-winning author Emma Smith, and a “How-to-Draw-a-Claude” lesson from illustrator Jennifer Potter.

Great for ages 3–10, and anyone else who wants to wish Claude a happy hatchday.
