In anticipation of World Book Day, tomorrow, I paid a visit to Broadclyst Primary School to talk to the reception children about being an illustrator. It was a lovely morning with lots of friendly, smiling little faces, asking lots of questions. After I read the children a story I got them to do some wonderful bird drawings, which had lots of fabulous colours. We started by drawing an egg shape, which was then turned into birds of all shapes and sizes. By starting a drawing with a simple shape, young children are less intimidated by the blank sheet of paper. I only wish that I had photographed a few more of the drawings. Alas! Time seemed to run away.
