Let’s Connect!: An Exploration of Relationships in Picture Book and Graphic Novel Illustration
September 27 at 5pm
Join leading children’s book illustrators Rosena Fung, David Namisato and Julie Flett, finalists for the Canadian Children’s Book Centre Book Awards, for a discussion of their illustrative styles and techniques, moderated by Audrey Hudson, Richard & Elizabeth Currie Chief, Education & Programming at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Picture books and graphic novels enable readers to develop visual literacy. These two literary forms also help children to understand their relationships with themselves, other people, and nature. This panel discussion explores how these creators use illustration, in picture books and graphic novels, to explore the concept of connection and to depict the ways in which we connect to ourselves, others, the land, and our country.
ASL interpretation will be provided for this event.
