Sean Julian and Paula Bowles ran a workshop on the Saturday, teaching children to draw characters including bears, dinosaurs, woolly mammoths and robots. Sean's book 'Brave Little Owl' was read on CBeebies recently and is still viewable on the BBC iPlayer. and Paula has a new book called 'Little Lou and the Woolly Mammoth' recently published by Bloomsbury.
The workshop went down a treat, and there were some marvellous creations by kids of all ages:
|Sean shows us some top tips for drawing gorillas.|
|Some excellent Woolly Mammoth colouring!|
|A captive audience|
|Amazing little robots!|
|A variety of creative bears.|
|A buzzing studio atmosphere!|
|Sean's excellent dinosaur, worth a million pounds! |
And some equally great creations by the children.
|A variety of characters on the wall and a room full of artists!|
Sunday saw the Brillustration group 'take over' the art space on mass. Big sheets of paper were pinned to the walls, and all sorts of crayons, pens, pencils and paints were layed on by the good folk at The Affordable Art Fair. We spent the day drawing over the walls with anything that inspired us, inviting members of the public to join in. We soon had a busy bustling atmosphere, with people squeezing in to find a space to draw! Great to see so many people keen to get creative...
Many thanks to:
Sarah Barrett at The Affordable Art Fair.
