Artist-in-Residence workshop

A WALK – THE THINKING PROCESS IN CREATING A PICTURE BOOK

15 September 2016Event full: registrations closed

In this first of three workshops led by Sydney School of Education and Social Work Artist in Residence Jeannie Baker, participants will be guided through the process of creating a children's picture book. Ms Baker is an award-winning filmmaker, artist and children's book author who is also known for her use of mixed media to create detailed and elaborate collages, considered works of art in themselves. She has developed a very distinct style that is readily recognisable. Two of her books, Where the Forest Meets the Sea and The Hidden Forest have been published in big-book format, and illustrations developed for her most recent book, Circle, formed the basis of a travelling exhibition that began a national tour at the National Maritime Museum.
