Illustrator Lucy Letherland visited Neston Primary School recently.
Lucy inspired the pupils during the workshops she delivered. She talked about how she creates her vibrant, colourful and creative illustrations. The children were taught how to draw their own animals and had the opportunity to ask Lucy about her work, how she became an illustrator and her favourite types of illustrations.
Lynda Graham from the UKLA also travelled to Neston on the day. She said: "It was a joy to be at Neston Primary School to see Lucy Letherland lead workshops for the winner of the ‘Our Class Loves This Book' Award.
"Neston Primary School were very deserving winners."
Headteacher Rob Golding added: "Our thanks to Lucy for sharing her skills, time and expertise with the children. Our pupils were inspired by Lucy and her work.
"Thanks also to Chris Ransom (Quarto Kids Books) and Lynda Graham (UKLA) for joining us on this special day and for braving the ice and snow to travel from London."
