This is something I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time now. I was first asked to draw this by the reception or year one class at the British School in Brussels. Sadly I forgot to take pictures of their work, but they were truly wonderful!

A visit to St Andrew’s Primary School Newport

pizza-horroI had a great day at St Andrew’s Primary School in Newport yesterday, where I told stories, answered lots of questions and got lost on the way to Morrisons – only a hundred yards away!

I showed Key Stage 1 how to draw whales and years three and four how to draw the Pizza Man from my Little Horrors’ story – The Swamp Man. The drawing shown here is the scariest Pizza/Swamp Man drawing anyone has ever drawn in one of my school sessions. It just has that element of scariness about it!

St Andrew’s has been a split Juniors and Infants for a hundred years, but this term the two schools have combined to become a Primary School. If there was a lot of paddling going on under the water as the new systems are worked out and put into place, it wasn’t noticeable and everything worked smoothly and serenely – like the proverbial swan.

There are around five hundred children in the school at the moment but, with the building of a new housing estate on the old steel works, they are planning to increase to 750 children very soon! Good luck with that and thanks for a great day.

A special thanks to years 5 and 6 who valiantly put up with my manic Dylan Thomas impersonation while I told them about my book Dragon Gold, reading from the section where Mr Davies the school teacher in the story, tells his class how the Red Dragon of Wales came to be – a story from the Mabinogion that Mr Davies is very fond of!

Everyone Really Can Draw

EveryOneCanDrawCoverSmallshopYes, I really do believe everyone can draw… so much so I wrote the book!

Drawing is much like writing.

Imagine if you had spent as much learning to draw simple shapes as you did learning to draw your letters. Then imagine drawing every day of your school life, the same amount of time you spent learning to make words, sentences, paragraphs, chapters, essays and books out of those simple letter shapes.

Drawing just needs a bit of simple instruction and practice. Everyone who can write or make a mark with a pencil can draw!

Everyone Can Draw makes drawing easy and not scary. Follow the simple progression, page by page, from dots to lines to triangles to squares and circles and you will soon be drawing things you never thought you could.

Then keep coming back to my Youtube channels to learn more!

Everyone Can Draw is now available from the Amazon Kindle Store UK and Amazon US or as a pdf download from this website as a signed book from this website or a book version on Amazon in the UK and Amazon US and all other good bookshops.
