Katrin Dreiling - Creating an artists book for ages 9-12
Creating an Artist's Book - Illustration Workshop for children. Recommended for 9 - 12 years.
Sunday 17 March - 1:00 -3.00pm. | $10 All materials supplied.
Create an "artists book" with illustrator Katrin Dreiling. This workshop will focus on drawing technique. Katrin will develop a short story with the children and after introducing them to some of the techniques that I she is always using for her professional work they will craft a mini-book (artists book) together. This workshop will show them the synergy between text and pictures in a playful and creative way. Children can take away the finished book to read again and again or maybe even extend their story.
Katrin is Germany born and raised but moved to Australia with her husband and three children. Now she lives in a wooden house on stilts next to a creek filled with snakes, strange sounding birds and poisonous toads and keeps hoping to spot a Koala one day.
She is self-taught and creates quirky illustrations that feature different media, texture and techniques that children are familiar with and speak to them. Katrin’s first picture book “The World’s Worst Pirate” has been awarded “Notable Book 2018” by the Children’s Book Council of Australia, short-listed for the 2018 Speech Pathology Australia Award and the Society of Women Writers NSW Biennial Awards 2018 and she also delivered illustrations for a highly successful video animation production on YouTube.
Katrin also teaches art to children and bribes them with lollies to clean up afterwards. Additionally she conducts workshops for both adults and children. In her free time Katrin enjoys walking her big Golden Retriever Loki who loves to eat and watch Marvel movies just as much as her.
