U.S. consulate hosts children's book illustration workshop

The U.S. Consulate in Yekaterinburg gathered alumni from its government exchange program earlier this month to create children's stories and explore illustration.

The event, held at Yekaterinburg's National Centre for Contemporary Arts, guided participants as they created mini-books and tried their hands at collage illustration techniques in the style of American illustrator and children's author Eric Carle.

Carle is best known for his book The Hungry Caterpillar, which has sold millions of copies worldwide.
