CBCA NSW | Central Coast Sub-branch Past Events
Draw Your Treasure with our Illustrators At Large
Liz Anneli and Dub Leffler, our "Illustrators at Large", presented inspirational workshops to over 100 students at this year's CBCA NSW Book of the Year primary schools event held at Erina library on Wednesday 15th August.
Thank you to The Painted Willow, our local illustrator for joining us at our Illustrators at Large event. This was a fantastic surprise for all who attended who thoroughly enjoyed seeing your fantastic illustrations and are now equally keen to find your drawings published and on their library shelves in the very near future. Thank you also goes out to the Central Coast Library Service for assisting with a great new space to host our annual event, and to Book Face Erina for giving students the opportunity to buy a copy of our author/illustrator's books to be personally signed on the day.
