Alphabet travels to Greater Victoria libraries

The travelling alphabet will be available for viewing at the Saanich Centennial Library during library hours until April 30.

The Saanich Centennial Library will house the Island Illustrators Society’s travelling alphabet exhibit starting April 2.

All 26 letters of the alphabet were illustrated with a Canadian nature theme.

The exhibit features the work of 21 different artists from the society. Several branches of the Greater Victoria Public Library are taking turns each month hosting the exhibit and holding free drawing workshops.

Artist Joanne Thomson will share her watercolour and ink illustration methods at the library on April 7. Illustrator Marcia Semenoff will show kids how to do scratchboard art on April 21.

The group plans to create books or posters with their pieces after the exhibit is over.

The travelling alphabet will be available for viewing at the Saanich Centennial Library at 3110 Tillicum Rd. during library hours until April 30.

It then moves to the Nellie McClung Branch in May.
