Master Classes at Turgenev Library in 2008
Magical Saw artists gave three master classes for children during the exhibition "Book with Pictures-2". Master classes were dedicated to small books with cutover. The children were offered to devise their own story with a name starting with “ABOUT” and make illustrations for it. At first participants could see the exhibition, get acquainted with the artist and learn how the illustrations were created, including the collective Magical Saw’s project — “ABOUT everything”. Afterwards they started working. Children could choose different materials; it was possible to use pencils, felt pens, chalks, pieces of paper, strings and paper board — anything that was at hand. Someone simply drew, yet many others tried the collage technique. All the kids fancied interesting stories and made funny illustrations. By the end of the master class every participant created a small book.
