Today an illustrator, Giuditta Gaviraghi (Judi), came to talk to Y1 Cherry about drawing characters in books. First we practised changing the mood of a face to make it happy or sad or angry or sleepy. Then we each had an animal to draw, so we worked hard to get better at it like Judi did in her sketch book. After that, we used coloured paper and tore off little bits of it to make the shapes of the body, arms and legs of our animals. We stuck it down on white paper to make colourful characters! Finally we read one of the books Judi created the illustrations for, called Glitter. It was brilliant, and it had glitter on every page!
