Viviane Schwarz Performance

How did it go?

We had a great time! Check back here for our write-up soon…

Viviane Schwarz Workshop

Viviane will begin this hands on creative workshop by reading the class her book How to Be on the Moon. Then the children will have a go at creating their own enormous class picture book. Using a 10 metre roll of paper folded into pages Viviane will help the children to work in pairs illustrating their section of the story. With plenty of opportunity for team work and collaboration and the chance to plan and create a story through pictures, this workshop will enable all children to take part in the creation of a glorious picture book that could take centre stage in your school library!

Praise for How to Find Gold

Schwarz’s illustrations are truly lovely, from the simple lines of the characters to the stunning double spreads of the discovery itself. This story celebrates the imagination, play and adventure – children (and adults) will be behind Anna and Crocodile all the way.
