While I was in Wigtown for the book festival I made a mural for the school playground. I began with a day in School drawing children who posed for me. Then I showed the children how to draw too. I use these sketches to make the mural, which I painted onto great big, 8 x 4 foot boards. This weekend the boards went up and , to my huge relief, it all fits together.
Here are some of the children’s drawings – I love how they interpret what I do!
I had a great day, yesterday at Inglefield House School in Monmouth. They were running out of space to the library had to go and be turned into a classroom. Oh no! No Library.
While I was drawing with the year 3s, a huge, red, London bus arrived and parked up outside the front door. It’s their new Library!A fabulous it was too, with carpets and shelves and seats and reading nooks and crannies all ready for the books that were piled up in crates looking for a new home.
I was given the honour of untying the ribbon and unofficially opening the bus and being the first on board to inspect it.
Have great fun in your library and Read, Read, Read!
