Shaun Tan Exhibition
Our local library and art gallery are showing "Shaun Tan: The Art of Story. Discovering The Lost Thing - Book to Film". It's a great little exhibition with original artwork from the picture book and film. The exhibition shows the process used to turn the picture book into an animated short film.
The children designed their own "lost things" for the kids mural at the gallery.
Shaun Tan created lots of mixed media texture pieces which were used to "cover" characters and backgrounds in the film.
The children are going to take some of Shaun's ideas and incorporate them into their own story books for their entry into the Make Your Own StoryBook competition. Watch this space!
