Ross Kinnaird School visit!

On Tuesday 6 September we had the honour to see professional NZ children’s book Illustrator Ross Kinnaird in action!  We got together in the hall to see this very talented artist and heard lots of laughter and giggles when he made Mrs. Hartley turn into a very elegant egg-laying cartoon character!
Some children were lucky to be invited for a hands-on afternoon workshop with Ross Kinnaird.  He sure has sparked some dreams and made art and book characters come to life!  The art of illustrating suddenly has a whole new dimension for Te Puke Primary School students and we all went home that day with a pencil behind our ears and a head full of ideas! 
Children who can’t get enough of Ross Kinnaird can visit his fun blog full of his latest books and funny cartoons:
