Course in drawing and bookmaking for kids

Gerðarsafn offers a free course for kids between 8-12 year olds on Saturday, December 12th  between  13-15 pm.

Visual artist Edda Mac leads workshops where we will learn how to illustrate books in the spirit of Barbara Arnason (1911-1975). During the course we will take a look at Barbara's drawings and engravings and discuss how to tell a story with only pictures. We will experiment with drawings and create textures with different types of paint. We then use our efforts to make a picture book where the illustration is in focus.

The course is designed for kids aged 8-12 years. Participation in the course is free.

We encourage those interested to register at as soon as possible and no later than Friday 11th of December, since there is a limited amount of places.

Looking forward to seeing you!
