The workshop aimed at approaching the charming world of children books through understanding the work of the author and the illustrator, and how each of them think about the text . Beside the role of the illustrator in imagining the text and getting “a parallel text “. starting by discussing the given ideas to broaden the children`s minds and develop their imagination so as to reach their visions concerning feelings to enable them to express that in an artistic work.
Following that was the formation`s phasewhich combined the text and the illustration where we discussed the space of the text to the illustrations and how they come together. Thinking through images comes where the meanings were transferred through illustrations. Givingthe children the chance through using different materials to become more passionate and defeat theimage of the sadness and the feeling of fear on the white page.
The workshop was held by an invitation from the ministry of culture in Algiers to attend the international cultural festival for literature and youth’s books at the capital Algiers and two others cities :Tibaza and TeziOzo
