Today Ilon’s Wonderland held Inspiration day for their Young curators and school children invited to take part in the Waterdrop project. The Inspiration Day was about inspiring the children involved in various artistic ways of expressing themselves for the exhibition they were about to create. They got workshops in nature photography, illustrations with various technique and creative writing. The literature from the three authors (H.C. Andersen, Tove Jansson and Astrid Lindgren & Ilon Wikland) being the centre of their work.
