Workshop with an Illustrator

The online workshop for children with the illustrator Mladen Andelković was hosted by Jelena Gvozdenac Martinov and Vladimir Tot on the video-communication service Google Meet and it was also streamed live on the Facebook page of the National Museum. Participants were children from ages 8 to 13.

Mladen Anđelković is one of the leading illustrators of children books, who is working with the biggest publishers in the region.

The workshop had three parts. First, illustrator and children are introduced, then the attendants were able to hear how to become an illustrator, what the necessities to become successful illustrator or comics writer are, where illustrators find the ideas for the illustrations and what school they have to attend to become an illustrator etc.

During the second part, some illustrations from Mladen were shown, both for children and for adults. Mladen answered questions about the techniques and tools that he used for illustrating. Most questions were about digital tools that he uses.

In the third part participants chose what to draw with Mladen. Together with the illustrator, they drew simultaneously in different styles. Afterwards, the children sent their work to the hosts of the workshop for a small online exhibition.
