Brenda Clark, Michael Martchenko, Barbara Reid, Werner Zimmermann and many others have work in the show. The artworks in the show include preliminary sketches for a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process. Text with each piece provides the artist’s perspectives on their medium, their creative process and their art training, as well as a list of some of their favourite children’s book illustrators.
A sketch book is on hand for visitors to create their own drawings. Visitors can also do a short survey about their own favourite children’s books.
