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.
