In this article, we aim to introduce and analyze in an intercultural illustration project, the process of collaborative production in a project-based learning approach with visual communication design students in Sakarya University Faculty of Fine Arts , Sakarya, Turkey. This Project, entitled “Tell your Fairytale, Let It Become a Book” aiming to attract especially the international students’ attention at the first step by calling them to bring a fairytale from their own culture. In the second step, students from Visual Communication Design Department illustrated the fairytales in a collective workshop process and completed a book of fairytales from different cultures with many individual illustrative perspectives. At the end of this Project, supported by Republic of Turkey Prime Ministry Presidency of Turks Abroad and Related Communities, intercultural exchange has been realized through the similarities between different cultural products. During project students transformed into active subjects determining their own needs and completed their learning with project-based production.
