Printmaking for ChildrenI Want to be in a Book Narelle Oliver

Artist Lee FullARTon will share with children the story and illustrations from Narelle Oliver’s picture book I Want to be in a Book, featured in the exhibition at the Ipswich Community Gallery. Lee will introduce children to Narelle’s trademark linocut techniques featured in her picture books. Inspired by her work children will then create their own printing plate using dense foam and print a series of prints in a fun filled hands on workshop.

For children aged 9 - 13.  All materials will be supplied. 

Lee FullARTon is a practicing and teaching artist. Lee met Narelle Oliver many years ago at a literature festival and they instantaneously struck up a friendship and connection through their passion for children’s engagement in art, story and printmaking. In 2012 Lee and Narelle worked closely together on ‘The Art of Story’ an Artist in Residence Project funded by Arts Queensland. Lee is honoured to curate and produce the ‘'I Want to be in a Book' exhibition and accompanying projects with children and artists for SAFI 2017.

This project is funded by Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF). The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a partnership between Queensland Government and Ipswich City Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
