Cummings) and Fairy Tales of the Slavs Peasants and Herdsmen (Alexander Chodsko and Emily J.

An illustration project based on sourcing traditional legends and tales; applying alternative teaching concepts, working with folklore themes and translating aesthetics throughout the works.
A full visual art experience adapting a fairy-tale motif; varying the possibilities to use imaginary space in response to the affect of technology overload and visual pollution on children.
Children are encouraged to choose characters and objects from pre-selected tales related to their cultural heritage; furthermore the project is focused on the understanding of a process of paint making out of pigments from edible plants and mineral sources.
