Power of Pictures

Brilliant fun with illustrator and author Viviane Schwarz!

Year 5 Topaz class were lucky enough to go to the Discovery Story Centre in Stratford, on Thursday 15th November, to take part in a workshop based on a new programme being run by the CLPE entitled the Power of Pictures. The children enjoyed working with Viviane Schwarz, author and illustrator of the book ‘Is there a dog in this book?’ who demonstrated to the children how to create characters for picture books. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed drawing and sketching characters, and creating settings for them. An inspiring trip for us all.
