Workshop with Tarsila Kruse

Mrs. Lawlor’s 6th Class attended an art workshop in Gorey Library last November. The workshop was given by Tarila Kruse, an illustrator of children’s books. Tarsila’s first picturebook, Ná Gabh ar Scoil! has been shortlisted for both the CBI Children’s Book of the Year Awards 2016 and the Gradam Réics Carló 2016 (Book of The Year for Young People in Irish).

The workshop was interactive and the children produced some interesting pieces themselves using Tarsila’s Quick Drawing Cheat Sheet.

I think we have a few illustrators of the future in our midst!
