Come along and brush up on your artistry skills with local author and illustrator Karen Blair!

Come spend a morning with award-winning author and illustrator Karen Blair! Karen loves to illustrate the joys and adventures of childhood. Her latest picture book, Train Party, is a CBCA Notable book for 2022.

Bring along a photo of your dog (or other pet) and Karen will share her dog portrait drawing techniques used in When Billy Was a Dog using charcoal and other fun art materials. If you don't have a pet - no worries - we will also have some great pictures to use as inspiration.

This is a messy activity so wear your oldest clothes!
