School Author Visits

June 8, 2018

We made Author Visits to 2 of our local schools (St Patrick's Mortlake & Strathfield North Public School) this week.

 

It was very rewarding to see the children's faces lighting up, while listening to the stories read to them by our resident art teacher & published author Nathaniel Eckstrom.

 

Nathaniel also shared with the students his own journey on becoming artist/author/illustrator, starting when he was just a child.

 

And the many, many stages required to create a children's story book... even the teachers & I were fascinated!

 

We were particularly impressed by a number of Y1 & Y2 students, who came up to us the end of their session to tell us that they too wanted to become authors / illustrators when they grow up (ohhhhh…so sweet!). 

 

Hopefully we have inspired some of the students to pursue their own artistic talents and continue to develop a love for reading & literacy as well.

 

As Dr Seuss says:

The more that you READ,

the more things you will KNOW.

The more that you LEARN,

the more places you’ll GO.

 

Thanks for having us at your schools!

 

We've made a short video clip of the visits, check it out >> St Pat's  or SNPS.
