THE accomplished children's author and illustrator Peter Carnavas will be visiting the Somerset region today to share his creative talent with children during two separate workshops.
The award winning author, renowned for his creative drawings of children's book characters, will share design tips with children aged between eight and 16 years old.
He will be presenting a cartooning workshop in Esk today.
The Esk Library will host the workshop from 10.30am.
Participation in the workshops is free; however, bookings are required and can be made by phoning the library on 5424 4080.
Somerset Council regional librarian Caroline Smith said she was delighted to offer children of the region the opportunity to learn from a talented author and illustrator.
"This is a unique opportunity for children to learn from an artist who has published and written several books and won various awards for his work," Ms Smith said.
"I would encourage parents to register their children to attend these special workshops as I'm confident they will provide aspiring artists with plenty of ideas."
Mr Carnavas has held various cartooning workshops with children over the years and has also won several awards for his efforts including his first published book, Jessica's Box.
