Fringe Arts Bath event – 27th May – 11th June.
Picture books are the first step in the child’s future reading habits. As adults we concentrate on the text and expect to read a fascinating story, but children are often more influenced by the pictures rather than the story itself. That is why I think that the quality of artworks in picture books is so important. Each book has the potential to be a “mini fine art exhibition” carefully curated by the author, publisher and the parent who chooses which book a child should see. But in this exhibition all those middlemen will be skipped and the art will go straight from artist’s hand to child’s hand.
There will be “story time” readings of the books and illustration workshops with children.
