monsters at coolock library, dublin!

So Dublin Writer's Festival has started off with a bang! Or should I say... a GROWL? Today I led a big pack of boys from Scoil Fhursa in reading Morris the Mankiest Monster and drawing their own awesome monsters.



To begin, here's the monster they helped me draw.



Then they were off! We had a huge roll of Fabriano paper, oil pastels and chunky crayons, and I encouraged them to draw big and bold. And they did!



Big thanks to the teachers, assistants and head librarian Mags Curley (far right), and Irma Grothius who escorted me there and back.



More monsters! If you want to get involved in the Get Drawn In programme this week, check out the programme here! More good news: Mountains to Sea Festival in Dún Laoghaire just announced their Schools Programme today! And special treat, my fabulous studio mate, Gary Northfield, will be doing a TEENYTINYSAURS event on Friday, 6 September. Find out about it on the Mountains to Sea website here!
