Illustration Slam

The whole of primary 7 and half of primary 5 were fortunate enough to be invited through to the BBC in Glasgow to become the 40 strong audience for the latest Author’s Live event – Illustration Slam. The audience had to number 40, hence the unusual 1.5 classes! Three famous illustrators were on hand to discuss their work and what it takes to become an illustrator of children’s books. And they had to do this while talking to us in the audience and answering tricky questions. A testament to their skill. Even a famous commonwealth athlete joined in the fun. The children were commended on their behaviour and enthusiasm by the BBC staff. They proved to be fantastic ambassadors for the school.

  1. Hi,
    This looked like really good fun. Can we view the show at all? I can’t seem to find it on iplayer.

  2. Charlotte,
    It takes up to a fortnight for the show to be available on line. It can then be viewed on the Scootish Book Trust website. We will let you know as soon as we see anything; it is certainly worth watching. The children were great and those of us in school thoroughly enjoyed watching them!
