Wondrous Shapes Workshop

Ashwin Chacko

Wondrous Shapes Workshop

Join author and illustrator Ashwin Chacko for this live creative art and story class workshop based on his book ‘What Wondrous Shapes.’ Ashwin will share his colourful, eye-catching art, and his unique talent with schoolchildren in Galway. He will talk about his work as an illustrator and designer and share his book with you. He will then show a specially created video about how to create your own characters and animals from shapes. After you have created your own characters, Ashwin will answer your questions about his book and about his work as a designer and illustrator.

Get ready! You’ll need white paper and markers or colouring pencils – and it’s a good idea to prepare questions with your pupils before this interactive event.

He seeks to capture these moments in bold lines and shapes; his compositions focus on a strong use of characters intermingled with typography and patterns. He likes to describe his work as: positively playful.
