Literature workshops are held in the Centre's galleries within an exhibition of original artwork from an Australian picture book. Each term, there are at least four picture books exhibited which may include drafts, research material, photographs, storyboards, dummy books, and preliminary artwork.
Workshops are interactive and will have students engrossed by explaining the illustrations and predicting the storyline. The Centre's Education Officers share the journey of the book from its beginning to the final book format: through questions, discussions, drama, writing, and drawing.
For primary school workshops in particular, The Literature Centre proudly acknowledges our long and rewarding sponsorship with Healthway and 'Go for 2 & 5' who assist us with funding our 'Go for 2 & 5' Primary School Literature Programme throughout the year.
Did you know we also have travelling exhibitions? Literature Workshops can be held at your school, conducted by Education Officers, and using the Centre’s range of our travelling exhibitions. See the Travelling Exhibitions section for details.
