Inspiring Illustrator

A group of Year 6 students were treated to an illustrator session on Zoom with charismatic Marc McBride, illustrator of Emily Rodda’s Deltora Quest series.

Although a very different experience on a screen, Marc spoke about his drawings and ways to communicate ideas. He emphasised the importance of reading and drawing to exercise our imagination.

Over the 90 minute session, Marc spoke about his childhood, showed his illustrations, completed a dragon sketch (for the School to keep!) and guided the boys to draw their own dragons. Marc also talked about sketching on a computer program and answered questions.

Thanks Mrs Lowe for arranging this fantastic opportunity for the boys. We look forward to displaying Marc’s completed dragon illustration in the new Art Room.
