Did you know that everyone can draw? And everyone can choose happiness for themselves, every single day? Young creatives have the chance to learn the art of happy picture book making from local author and illustrator, Tessa Yates. A holiday workshop for children to acquire meaningful skills in order to put their own stories about happiness onto paper using pictures and words. Workshops teach important picture book conventions from character design to page composition in an interactive environment. Time at home is used to complete tasks for the following day, resulting in the completion of a project (up to 16 pages) by the end of the course, with the additional option to assemble and print the book professionally.
