Imagination & Illustration

WORKSHOP TAKES PLACE AT TWO RIVERS GALLERY DOWNTOWN PRINCE GEORGE.  Your students have incredible imaginations!  Guide your class to create illustrations of creatures, animals, robots and more that are as unique as each individual that imagines them.  Learn a series of fun exercises that ignite the imagination, tell stories that develop individual expression, and write a character profile.  This workshop will give you resources to try with your students, guide you through an illustrative process that sets your imagination free, and teach you some techniques to slow your students down to work towards incredible finished illustrations.  Be ready to work with pencil, sharpie, pencil crayons, collage, watercolour and more!  These activities have been completed by over 1,000 grade k-7 students who produced nearly 1,000 different creatures!
