Year 2 meet an illustrator at Redhill Library

Year 2 had a wonderful morning at Redhill Library meeting Hilda Offen, an author and illustrator. She showed us how she plans and creates her artwork and stories and answered the children's many thoughtful questions . At the end of the visit Hilda helped us to create our own rescue story. The story featured children from the class and she included them in her picture! In the afternoon, Year 2 used the same techniques back at school to create their own illustrations.

Here is what the children thought of the morning ...

"Wow, Hilda's drawing is amazing!"

"Look she's drawing us!"

"I want to be an illustrator!"
