When we go on a journey, we see things, we admire things, we learn things along the way. But, how do we tell them to others through what we draw? And how do we tell them to children? Children love story telling, and drawing is an exceptional story teller.
This workshop will introduce you to the children's book illustration process, to bring your acquired sketching skill into the perspective of children' s book.
