ArtPlay are holding a free exhibition of original illustrations, pilule prints and preliminary works by Terry Denton from the famous Treehouse series created with Andy Griffiths, story coinciding with the Melbourne Writers Festival 2014 (21-31 August).
While the books are aimed at 6-12 years and so we haven’t got to them with Lady AB yet, Bark! Bark! Bark! still caters for under 5s because along one wall is a huge mural painted by Terry – which you’re allowed to draw on!
Using lead pencil everyone is encouraged to add their your own Treehouse-inspired character, contraption or crazy critter. For older kids there are also activity stations for making your own cartoons and flip books.
