Children’s Ilustration Program a hit at the Hive!

So this spring break I decided to teach a four day illustration program to a group of Gabriola kids called “Re-inventing the Classics”. The program was packed with 15 students all interested in learning how to create illustrations for picture books. But this class had a twist and the kids were asked to “re-invent” a classic illustration from their favourite picture book. Some chose Dr. Suess and others chose classics which were more personal to them. The end result was a brilliant show at the Hive Emporium located in the heart of Gabriola Island. The kids had a blast and so did I!! Many pieces sold and the reception and feedback was so positive and uplifting. I was so so proud to be a part of such an amazing program and helping some budding young artists participate in their first ever art show! Way to go you guys!!
