Irma Stern Children's Book Launch

Posted on 15 June 2023

Irma Stern's life story is an inspiration to us all. Not only do we admire her superb art, but also her unwavering self-belief and tenacity. In a world where it’s easy to doubt yourself and where criticism can bring you down, Irma shows us how trusting in your own self-worth can lead to true greatness. And how wonderful that a new book shares this lesson with children!

Written by well-known children’s author Katherine Graham, with engaging illustrations by Nicola Smith, this picture book biography tells the story of how Irma challenged the conventions of her day to establish herself as a successful artist. It will inspire children between the ages of three and nine to persevere to achieve their dreams.

Irma Stern Museum invites you and your little ones to join the launch of From Ugly to Beautiful: The Story of Irma Stern during a fun and creative morning of book-reading, art-making and refreshments.

Venue: Irma Stern Museum
Date: Saturday 24 June 2023
Time: 10.30 - 12.00

Booking essential: Please contact Portia at irmastern@uct.ac.za | 0608270787 | 0216507240
