talks and workshops

Andrew explores the creation of a picture book through fun, rambunctious sessions drawing (literally) on the students’ imagination. Early primary students learn about the basics of character and plot, whilst older students develop ideas on point of view and design.

All students leave the session with their own book in hand. Andrew’s presentations range from an hour to longer artist-in-residence programs.
