Event Status

Know any budding artists? At this Wheeler Kids workshop, perfect for arty types aged 7–12, brilliant young illustrator Gabriel Evans will reveal some trade secrets, share his experiences from years in the business and put creative kids to work!

Gabriel uses traditional methods, like watercolour and ink, and is known for his fabulous illustrations in kids’ books including Roses are Blue, Annie’s Snail and Captain Sneer. He’ll give kids a ‘publisher’s brief’ to work through and give them a real taste of the professional creative process – providing tips on responding to text and sharing his insights on composition, mood and colour.
