The 2014 Book Week Celebrations in the Gregory Fish Library involved a large number of different events and activities in which Greenways & Frogmore students participated. A visit by Marc McBride was a highlight!
As the illustrator of the very successful Deltora Quest series, Marc McBride visited us equipped with a folio of his paintings and illustrations of dinosaurs which feature in this series of books. The 25 students who attended this session were mesmerized listening to Marc’s enthusiastic and incredibly inspiring presentation while he created, on the spot, an airbrush painting of a dinosaur. Not content with just talking, Marc encouraged the students to put pen to paper and create their own drawings of dinosaurs! Having run out of time for more, we have resolved to explore the possibility of having Marc return again to run a longer workshop with the students.
Meantime, we are the proud owners of a dinosaur painting which will take pride of place on our walls once we frame it!
