ACCLAIMED children’s author Nick Sharratt makes a welcome return to Bromsgrove’s Artrix over half-term to teach youngsters how to draw his famous characters, including Tracy Beaker and Timothy Pope, along with all kinds of crazy creatures.
Nick, well-known for writing Shark in the Park, The Witch’s Kitchen and a host of other much-loved titles, will share his best drawing tips at the School Drive venue during the 75-minute session at 2pm on October 31.
Children and adults are urged to go along, take pencils, paper and something to lean on so they can ‘have a go’ at illustrating.
Nick has illustrated close to 260 books.
They range from board books for babies to novels for young teenagers.
He’s worked with authors including Julia Donaldson, Jeremy Strong, Michael Rosen, Giles Andreae, Kaye Umansky, Kes Gray and most notably Dame Jacqueline Wilson and he’s also written around 40 of his own bestselling books.
And he’s the proud recipient of a gold Blue Peter badge.
The session is suitable for those aged four and over and tickets, which are £12, £10 for under 16s and £40 for a family ticket (two adults and two children or one adult and three children), are available by visiting artrix.co.uk or by calling 01527 577330.
