Imaginative Illustration in Charcoal and Chalk
with award-winning Illustrator PJ Lynch

Saturday, October 1 | 2 PM – 5 PM

Internationally renowned book illustrator of The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey, and The Boy Who Fell Off The Mayflower, and Ireland’s current Laureate na nÓg, PJ Lynch will lead a three-hour workshop exploring the potential of one of the most neglected illustration techniques, charcoal and chalk on grey board. Working from memory and the imagination, Lynch will demonstrate the scope of the medium from the broadest atmospheric effects to the most intricate detail, and he will help and encourage workshop attendees to get their hands dirty creating their own charcoal drawings. 

Attendees will require: Willow Charcoal, Chalk, a plastic rubber and a large sheet of grey cardboard.(approx 24”x 36”). An apron and wet wipes are also recommended…..it gets messy!

P.J. Lynch is the fourth Laureate na nÓg, Ireland’s laureate for children’s literature in 2016. He has worked as a Children’s Book Illustrator since leaving Brighton College of Art in England in 1984. He has won many awards including the Mother Goose Award, the Christopher Medal three times, and the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal on two occasions.
