What makes a monster a monster? Create your own with Plenty cover artist and illustrator Katrin Kadelke. 

In this workshop, Katrin will show how she creates watercolour monsters in her cheeky, lively style, and guide participants in dreaming up (and painting) monsters of their own. Come along for a morning of fun and upgrade your creative skills.

This free event is suitable for adults and children over eight. There are 15 spaces available; bookings are essential. Please email arts@whakatane.govt.nz with your name, age (if under 15) and contact details to secure a space.

You’ll find her cheery illustrations in TV productions, on theatre stages, in books, on merchandise, on packaging and brightening up online applications. Her unique style of watercolour is often described as lively and ‘always with a sense of humour’. 

Katrin’s work with Plenty began with her November 2017 cover illustration The Girl in the Water. Some of her monsters are hiding on Plenty’s May 2019 cover, too.

Plenty Exhibition has been developed with support from Whakatāne District Creative Communities.
