What You'll Do

Get drawn into an epic story full of mystery, imagination and illustration. Listen along to an original tale about the quest to rescue Chickenton’s favorite festival, then dream up and sketch out a hero to save the day. Learn illustration techniques like drawing big and starting with simple shapes as you make your own book. BE VISIONARY by imagining the characters and items your hero encounters—a grumpy wizard, mighty monster and dazzling medal—and capturing them all in your one-of-a-kind illustrations.
