In conjunction with BHP Billiton, the Literature Centre has organised two FREE events to promote literature for children.
THE ILLUSTRATOR'S JOURNEY ART EXHIBITION
~Sunday 28 October, 2012, 11am to 4pm
An exhibition of work featuring Shaun Tan, Matt Ottley, Kim Michelle Toft and more. Selected prints and original works will be available, along with the books featured.
At the last SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) meeting we got a sneak peek at the exhibition and it looks amazing. If you are interested in art or illustration I would highly recommend that you attend, especially if you would like to see a bit more of Shaun's behind the scenes work on certain picture books.
