Y1 - Artist Visit

Last week, we were joined by Emily Fellah, children’s illustrator and artist. She spent time in each year 1 and 4 class sharing her journey to becoming a published illustrator. She gave tips on how to reach success and reiterated the message ‘never give up’ a moto she lives by.

She shared some of her books and took us on an adventure meeting the characters she had created from superhero insects to gingerbread monsters!


Then onto the main event. The ‘how to’ part of the session where Emily took us through the simple steps in creating our very own characters, from bears to robots and superheroes! She gave tips and hints throughout. The children all created their own pieces of work and were super proud of the final pieces.

‘I haven’t drawn a bear before; I didn’t know where to begin! I do now, I am going to show all my family tonight!’ Harliegh 

‘I can draw a whole family, a bear family, It was easy!’ Maddie

‘I have made a superhero worm, like Superworm, but my one!’ Arthur

‘I’m excited for the artist, I hope she can teach me how to draw!’ Albie


‘The children were buzzing all day, excited to get stuck in and all proud of their creations and ready to show them off! Lovely to see everyone involved and enjoying themselves! A year group of budding artists’ Mrs Lester
