On Thursday 13 February 2014, the Year 1 students at Montville State School welcomed Pete Carnavas into their classroom. Pete is an author and illustrator of children’s picture books.
Pete centred his presentation on his book titled “Sarah’s Heavy Heart”. He cleverly demonstrated to our students how to show emotions through their drawings.
Pete read his story “Sarah’s Heavy Heart” to a very captive audience and encouraged the students to ‘have a go’ at drawing themselves displaying different feelings.
He shared with the students his initial plan of illustrations for his book, as well as the transformations of his drawings into paintings.
All the students in year one now have a much better understanding of the importance of illustrations in stories.
We would like to thank Pete Carnavas so much for offering his time and sharing his expertise with the children. We can’t wait until he visits us again!
