Illustration Workshop

Illustrating a book is not a simple task, but it is exciting. How does text relate to images? How do we transfer images from our head onto paper and how do we convey the author’s ideas? Drawing on works by some of the best-known illustrators, teachers will introduce participants to the basics of book design and help them make their own illustrations.
