Hurrah! While I was away earlier this week (I've been in London, but more of that later...) John did his knight-in-shining-armour bit and fixed my scanner. It took quite a bit of research, but he's very good at persevering in situations where I just give up and cry. Computers really get to me, but he actually enjoys the challenge. Just as well! So a big THANK YOU to John!!
And thanks to his tenacity, I am at last able to show you some of the lovely drawings the children at Lichfield (see Storytelling with Julia Jarman). So without further delay, here are some pirates and octopuses inspired by Class Three All At Sea:
This octopus is by Ben - love the tentacles Ben!
This fabulous pirate is by Elias, who is only 6 - amazing eh? He was very enterprising. He came up to me after the session and offered me a proposal: would I swap his drawing for the big pirate I had drawn on the flip chart earlier? How could I refuse such a clever ruse!? Have you got him on your bedroom wall Elias?
I thought this was delightfully colourful - and I love the idea of an octopus called George. Well done Erin!
This rather fierce pirate is by Karina age 6. I've been trying to work out what the round shape over his shoulder is and I just realised that it's the ship's wheel!
And last but not least, this is by Declan age 8 (nearly!) I really like the sea on this one too.
Sorry to the children whose pictures are't here. I'm afraid I have so little time at the moment I could only choose a few, but they were all lovely and I have put them on the wall of my studio so I can look at them while I draw. Thank you everybody!
