Teaching kids to draw is great fun.

18lrSt. Kilda Village “Stripfest” was a great event from my perspective. 25 families joined me across the day and like these two in the picture above did some amazing drawings.

I enjoyed talking about animals, teaching kids to draw through simple shapes and lines and exploring interesting and different facts about the animals we drew. The kids have lots of questions and I seemed to answer them all, offering either a story or a simple fact. Most importantly, both adults and kids had a real “red hot go” at my Wildfire Workshop. It shows in their executions and, I believe, most could say they were happy with their results or even “surprised themselves”. That’s the beauty of teaching or tutoring skill-based classes – you have this opportunity to leave a lasting and positive impression on all who attend.

“Stripfest” was truly, real great fun!¬†You can normally tell by the amount of questions the whole room has. The amount of noise and interaction that the day is a success and overflowing with fun. Thanks for the invite Vikki and Lucy and the St.Kilda Ecocentre, you left a warm memory and I hope to visit again soon. So sharper your pencils and keep drawing kids – I’ll be back.

Enjoy!

To give anyone wishing to bring the kids and join me on these sessions, a heads up …
I will be doing a storytelling and drawing workshop for kids and as a wildlife illustrator there will be an eco-bent on it. The theme this year I heard was cake so I could have something up my sleeve for this workshop.

I amd really looking forward to it, the WE LOVE LIFE FESTIVAL was great fun in the gardens earlier this year. So I hope to see you all there Sunday.

Enjoy!
