Work alongside professional illustrator Libby VanderPloeg learning to take playful drawings in new directions by incorporating collage. During this two-day workshop children learn about visual storytelling using cut-paper techniques to rearrange, edit, and remix their drawings, characters and settings. Play with design, color, and visual textures to reframe the way you see your own artwork. No drawing experience needed.
