Make a Book

Apple Bağdat Caddesi
In this session, we invite kids between the ages of 6-11 to create a monster drawing using Procreate on iPad. Through transferring the images of various materials onto the iPad, kids will be introduced to collage techniques and will be able to add color and texture to their drawings. Each and every monster, which will express their world of imagination, will come together to make a book in which they will have created collectively.
