Anna Walker: Storytelling and Imagination

Session Info:

I read a story. – We talk about books and where ideas come from. – I show early character roughs, and the development through to final artwork, including how long it takes to make a book, and mediums. – We do some drawing and the children create their own characters. – We think about the characters and how they could become a story.

As someone who loves books, I am passionate about the way children write and draw stories, real and imaginary. Stories are such a wonderful way to express your self and to capture thoughts. The individual voice of each child is to be treasured and I hope to encourage children to find their voice and use it.
