This week I was honoured to give a talk to year 3 pupils at Ninian Park Primary School, Cardiff, whose topic was “What Makes Our World Beautiful?” As part of their work, they were reading “The Great Kapok Tree” a book about rainforest conservation, by author and illustrator Lynne Cherry. They explored the story and the messages behind the book, and then drew characters from the book using my artwork as inspiration.
During my visit, we also discussed why it’s important to protect wildlife, which animals we could find in our gardens, and how whales and rewilding can help our ecosystems.
It was such a pleasure to see the work the pupils created – they are filled with pattern and look fabulous!
