Little Pencil is a Children’s Illustration Workshop that takes place in the new education space at the ICA

Little Pencil is based on the concept of Heavy Pencil, where illustrators draw in response to music with the results unfolding and projected onto the walls of the ICA bar.  Little Pencil encourages children to produce work to music by playing them a song, explaining the lyrics and then setting them the task of creating pictures to match them.   Each scene is filmed and projected in time to the music and the kids can watch it on big plasma screen in the new ICA Reading Room.

Each month, a leading illustrator heads the children’s workshop encouraging children to create in response to music.

  • Friday 19 June – Galia Durant, artist and musician from magical playtime band Psapp (Domino), will lead the workshop
  • Friday 3 July – Adrian Johnson
  • Friday 7 August – Magique and Villa Savimaa (all the way from Finland!)
