Collins Booksellers Presents Sketching in the Street With Myke Mollard
Two exclusive events just for locals after school. It will sort of be like Busking but kids and adults can join Myke in some quick and easy How-to-draw classes every 15 – 20 minutes or so. So get out your sketchpads and break out some pens, let’s go sketch with Myke and his friends.

Yes! After school do something novel – do something cool! Sketch in the street outside Collins Croydon with author/illustrator Myke Mollard. It will be loads of fun for everyone, so to celebrate art, enjoying or local community and Maroondah Art Gallery’s “Draw me a Story” exhibition. Please register your interest or just join Myke in the street, as he goes through the process of drawing things every 15 minutes. Sketch up anything you like or follow Myke’s lead. It will be whole lot of creative afterschool fun.
Pencils, board and paper supplied. But welcome to bring your own too. Register your interest in Collins Bookstore, Main Street Croydon.
To give anyone wishing to bring the kids and join me on these sessions, a heads up …
I will be doing a storytelling and drawing workshop for kids and as a wildlife illustrator there will be an eco-bent on it. The theme this year I heard was cake so I could have something up my sleeve for this workshop.
I amd really looking forward to it, the WE LOVE LIFE FESTIVAL was great fun in the gardens earlier this year. So I hope to see you all there Sunday.
It’s my creative vision to inspire kids of all ages to take an interest in preserving our native wildlife. This is Australia’s living heritage, and the way I would like to do this is through art education and engaging workshops. Wildfire Workshops have a big yet uplifting vision to spark a child’s imagination and at the same time:
• Inspire the love of reading and books through illustration and storytelling.
• Encourage the love of drawing through teaching simple easy-to-follow techniques
– discovering the ability to draw is like a second language within us all.
• Innovate by using traditional means to achieve fantastic digital ends.
• Endeavour to produce works of wondrous imagination and visual dexterity.
• Educate and highlight the plight of our endangered bush creatures while
creatively exploring Australia’s unique natural beauty through art.
