CBCA AND ZART ART JOINT SEMINAR SERIES: FEATURING FAMILIES
Families differ, so how do illustrators approach the challenge of depicting them?
Do they draw on their own personal experiences, or invent families they wish they had been part of (or are glad they were not)? Hear acclaimed illustrators Stephen Michael King, Lucia Masciullo, Mitch Vane and Anna Walker discuss their different approaches in a session chaired by Pam Horsey. The evening will conclude with book sales and signing.
30$ CBCA Members, 40$ Non Members.
Sat 29 October, 1.00-4.00 pm, Federation Square Book Market, Melbourne
Meet Lucia Masciullo at the Federation Square Book Market and watch Lucia at work in person and on the big screen. Have a book personally signed and chat about her illustrations.
We will be featuring her recently released picture book Come Down, Cat! written by Sonya Hartnett and published by Penguin Books. Free event.
