Illustrating for Children – An Artist’s Experience
Originally aired on October 26
Re-release November 30
Join leading children’s book illustrators Natasha Donovan, Eric Fan, Terry Fan and Miki Sato, finalists for the CCBC Book Awards, for a discussion and demonstration of their illustrative styles and techniques, moderated by Audrey Hudson, Richard & Elizabeth Currie Chief, Education & Programming at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Picture books are often the first introduction we have to the world of visual literacy, and through images, we can build complex and sophisticated narratives that young children can follow. This panel discussion explores the importance of the picture book as a tool for developing a child’s awareness of the world and their place within it.
This event is presented in partnership with the Canadian Children’s Book Centre, a national, not‐for‐profit organization dedicated to encouraging, promoting and supporting the reading, writing and illustrating of Canadian books for young readers. For more information, visit bookcentre.ca.
