This is a lively session with plenty of audience participation, poetry readings, live drawing and a group drawing session.
The session starts with a short slideshow on what an illustrator does and examples of work. The group then pick a short poem from a hat, we read it and discuss: it is funny? hopeful? gruesome? sad? How would they illustrate it? We then look at how another illustrator has tackled the poem.
