Illustration Workshops with Cheryl Orsini!

In these fast-paced, funny and highly interactive workshops, Cheryl helped a group of enthusiastic young illustrators create their own storybook characters through games such as ‘Quick Draw Deadlines’ and ‘Trial by Illustration’. Katoomba Library was the perfect location for a unique adventure in illustration.
