I’ve known Renita for a while now. Originally from America, Renita now lives in Wigtown, which the book town in Scotland, with the most stunning views across the estuary. When I’ve performed at the festival, the children have all been whipped up to a frenzy by Renita, who welcomes them in and “settles them down” [...]
I visited Ysgol Maes Owen today in Towyn, on the North Wales coast, a trip that had been organised by Conwy Libraries. All the children had lots of questions and some had researched my website so well, they knew more about me than I did!
I did lots of drawing with the children. It’s always amazing how, if they follow the instructions, they all draw the same picture but each one is different, reflecting the style and personality of each child. The ones that were reluctant all did really good drawings too.
Thanks for a great day everyone.
