Charlotte Firmin, illustrator of over 25 books (and author of a few too) has been a regular visitor to Primary, Secondary and Special schools, Libraries and Clubs in the South East for many years.
Charlotte brings along a big, empty book in which a story is created. There is plenty of opportunity for participation with ideas and characters suggested by the children and the pictures inevitably include them (and the adults too!). At the end of the visit the book is presented to the children.
With smaller numbers the children can contribute their own drawings or make their own versions of the story.
- The opportunity for children to build an illustrated story
- Plenty of class participation
- An insight into how a book is produced, using examples of her own art-work and books
- A story to start the session (where time permits)
See below for examples of work that Charlotte Firmin can deliver.
