The school library was at full capacity this morning when award-winning author and illustrator Judith Rossell visited to give primary school students a magical demonstration of illustration.
She is visiting the region for the New England Writers’ Centre and Children’s Book Council’s children’s literature festival “Booked In”
Excitement filled the room as each child drew part of a monster before passing it on to someone else to draw the next bit. Everyone seemed pleased with their final hybrid creation.
Judith is visiting schools in Walcha, Armidale, Guyra and Uralla to teach students about drawing and using research to inform stories, and will give a Live Link video presentation for children in rural and remote schools.She will also give a workshop for adults in Armidale.
