Quentin Blake: Inside Stories and The Lost Words: Exploring visual literacy

Linked to our Autumn exhibitions Quentin Blake: Inside Stories and The Lost Words, this programme explores how illustrators Quentin Blake and Jackie Morris, bring works of literature to life. In the morning students will tour both exhibitions with a member of the learning team exploring character development and the link between descriptive writing and visual imagery. The students will take part in a series of activities to develop literacy, creativity and drawing skills.

In the afternoon students will further explore character development, taking inspiration from the mornings activities and using Quentin Blake’s approach to create their own memorable characters.

Project timing 10am – 2.15pm
