Illustration workshop with Dub Leffler

15 Feb, 2024

In this exciting workshop tailored just for young minds, children will embark on an artistic adventure with acclaimed illustrator Dub Leffler, whose work features in Juvenilia in the Playspace Gallery.

Dub will take children through the history of illustration and how it’s used today.  

They will have the opportunity to watch Dub's creative process unfold as he explains his own illustration process with slides and video.   

Then it’s time for children to grab their pencils and unleash their inner artist!  

Participants will discover what it’s like to draw using both sides of the brain as well as watch Dub demonstrate what you can accomplish with just a scribble. 

This illustration workshop is for ages eight to 13.  

Bookings required. Parents and guardians are welcome to stay or explore Hyphen for the duration of the workshop.  

If you have any accessibility questions or special requirements, please contact us at hyphen@wodonga.vic.gov.au or (02) 6022 9330 to discuss.
