Creative Skills Workshop

On Tuesday 7 March, Steve Smallman, an author and illustrator from Staffordshire, spent the day in school working with our Prep pupils on their 'Twisted Tales' project.

First of all, he led an Assembly where he quickly produced a drawing of a Dragon - the boys were mesmerised watching him create this striking image so quickly. He then conducted workshops with Prep 1 and 2 pupils throughout the day.

Further Mr. Smallman explained how to draw traditional characters and gave tips on creating different expressions on characters for each part of a story progression. The boys were thoroughly inspired by him and by the end of the session they all had produced their own illustrations and were most proud of their new skills.
