S1 Writing/Illustration Workshop

A group of S1 pupils took part in a Writing/ Illustration workshop on Monday 12th March.  Bestselling author Viv French and illustrator Eilidh Muldoon visited Banff Academy as part of their schools tour for the ‘Portsoy Book festival’.  The writer and artist guided the pupils through story creation and designing a fold out book.  Attention was given to the promotional side of books with work on attractive front covers, back cover blurb and decisions on pricing.  Lots of imaginative work including sports and fairy-tale-themed stories were being worked on.  Due to the high level of perfectionism on display, no one quite got finished but the pupils hope to continue work on their books in class and at home.
