Imagine if you could have an art lesson from the best illustrators in the business?

Tune into the last Puffin Virtually Live webcast of 2017 for a spectacular drawing masterclass. By the end of the show your class will have created their superhero and sent their new character on a mission to change the world. In fact, they’ll have everything they need to start their next story.

The line-up
  • Draw-along with Adam Hargreaves - son of Roger Hargreaves, who continues his father's popular Mr. Men and Little Miss series of children's books, and this year has illustrated the Dr Men series
  • Get a taste of life as an illustrator from Nadia Shireen, picture book mastermind behind BumbleBear
  • Create comic book characters with Jeff Kinney, author and illustrator of Diary of a Wimpy Kid
  • Unleash your inner superhero with Ali-A, who’s been inspired by his new graphic novel Game On!, illustrated by Alek Sotirovski
  • Discover the power of a pencil to change the world in Malala’s inspiring new picture book, Malala’s Magic Pencil, illustrated by Kerascoët
  • Get the latest on using technology to create covers from multi-talented author of Wonder, R. J. Palacio.

Lesson plans created in partnership with STAEDTLER, coming soon . . .
