Dromkeen is open to visiting school groups and tertiary institutions, offering the opportunity for students to participate in day workshops run by visiting illustrators and authors of Australian children’s picture storybooks. We tailor the day’s activities to address learning outcomes that individual schools or groups wish to address.
School Gallery Program
Dromkeen also has a gallery program where visiting students browse through picture books, and original illustrations. We also view and discuss preliminary work to highlight the publishing process that authors and illustrators use, from the initial idea, author’s first draft, editing, storyboards, rough drawings, book design, printing and the final finished book.
Dromkeen now offers either 1-day writing workshops with award winning author and illustrator Mark Wilson, for groups of up to 45 students from Grades 4-6. Students write and illustrate their own picture storybook.
Dromkeen offers a range of school holiday programs for students in drawing and illustration. Other special events are held during the school term. Please continue to check our website and Facebook page for updated information.
