Rooms 19 and 20 had great fun with their buddies room 8, creating artwork for a "Pig the Pug" wall in the library. Pig is a favourite character and Aaron Blabey's books are read constantly.
On Thursday, March 29th children's book illustrator, Mandy Foot was an artist in residence in our school. Mandy set up her easel and paints in the library and created a painting based on the book Week theme for 2018, "Find your treasure".
Students helped select the colours from the array of wonderful paints and also asked Mandy questions about her craft. This was an interesting insight into the skill and time it takes to create an illustration in a picture book.
