Yiayia at the market

Illustrated by Oakleigh Grammar Year 10 students and created and printed by the Fronditha Care Communications team, the book follows a young boy coming to terms with his grandmother living with dementia.

Here’s what the students who have contributed to our Yiayia at the market children’s book had to say about their illustrations:

“In this project, I think my biggest gain is that I learned how to discuss ideas with others. I think the most interesting part of the whole process was trying to paint it in a way that I have never done before. The most useful thing about this project is that it gives us more experience about how to draw children’s book illustrations and how to try something new.”- Rui Li

“Working on this book has been a pleasure. Using a children’s book to cover a difficult subject was not easy. This book can inform and help children understand the difficulties of dementia. I learned and developed my drawing sills in cartoon style with the aim of engaging a child’s perspective. It was interesting.” – Theodore Gavrilescu

“Fronditha Care has provided opportunities for us to add another dimension to our progression as young artists. I also thank the support from my teacher in promoting my art to a wider audience.
I value the public, specifically children reviewing my illustration, which has added a further level of credibility to my work.”- Chloe Abbott

“Taking part in illustrating a children’s book on such a difficult topic was such an amazing experience. I am very grateful to be a part of it. From this, I learned a little more about dementia than I already knew, and also how to explain such a hard topic to children. I loved being able to explore ideas that relate to both dementia and Greek culture.
This will also be a great addition to my CV and future folios.” –  Eleni Pantelidis
