Characters: Mixed & Matched
October 5, 2018
Children’s book author and illustrator, Clare Pernice, will lead a workshop focusing on illustrated story characters. Creating separate features one at a time using a choice of different drawing materials, participants can mix and match heads, arms, legs, clothing and other belongings and/or trade with others to come up with a cast of original characters.
Clare will introduce various drawing styles, character concepts and drawing materials. The Society’s award-winning children’s books, exhibitions and collections will serve as inspiration.
Participants are welcome to bring favorite art supplies, but all materials will be provided.
Tickets: $50/ per student.
Born and raised in England, Clare Pernice’s passion for children’s books took root while influenced by Roald Dahl (who visited her school), and her witty story-telling father.

She has since illustrated and exhibited works in Paris, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Charleston and New York. She has also designed children’s books, clothes, toys, & murals, and has created costumes and props for film and stage. Clare’s book, Circus Girl, is currently available through the Society’s store.
