Brian Yanish, author of Junk Re-Thunk and creator of Scrapkins, Talk and Book Signing
I've been fortunate to work with The Muppets at Jim Henson Productions, train as a special effects mold maker, write and perform comedy, and design software, toys, accessories, apparel, and other consumer products for the children's market.
I thrill at the challenge of building worlds, crafting stories and finding ways to inspire kids to see their surroundings in a new way.
In 2007, I created ScrapKins®, a Recycled Arts Enrichment program that inspires children to see the creative potential in everyday junk. I've presented STEAM workshops and interactive building experiences to K-6 students at schools around the world and designed content and events for Sesame Workshop, Whole Foods, Seventh Generation, American Museum of Natural History, Skirball Museum, Maryland Science Center, NY Hall of Science, Boston Children’s Museum, World Science Festival, Maker Faire, and Scholastic Afterschool. >> Learn more about ScrapKins: www.Scrapkins.com
And there was that time I was on Sesame Street.
