Thank you to Kirsten Cooper and the Subiaco City Library, for inviting me to run some School Holiday Art workshops! Me and the kids came up with some pretty energetic characters, outrageous stories and fun book cover designs.
In the session I taught how to draw basic character body language and expressions. The children then took these skills and made their own wonderful creations, including the ‘eye-popping’ jelly bean pictured below.
And big cheers to Jane for the photos!
