Toronto Public Library: Sophie's Studio 2015

 

 

I had the honour of working with young people aged 8-12 every Saturday in November at Toronto Public Library's Burrows Hall.  The four week workshop, "Picture a Story" gave participants the chance to create their own characters and the world they live in.  Below is a sampling of their picture book projects--story outlines, brainstormings, character sketches, book dummys, rough layouts, final artwork--these brilliant young author/illustrators did it all!
