Here are a few photos from my recent visit to Ashley Infant School, where I got to share my children's books and do a drawing workshop with each of the year 2 classes. We take one of the animals from my New Forest Friends books and, step-by-step, recreate that animal using just lines, shapes, numbers and letters on the page. The children copy each step and slowly build up a picture that looks very similar to mine, meaning even the most under-confident of artists can achieve something recognisable to be proud of.
We polished off the day with a book signing, which I'm pleased to say was well attended. Thank you, Ashley Infants!
