Posted on 12/03/2019 Author and illustrator Emma Carlisle visits The Chase

Picture book illustrator and author Emma Carlisle visited The Chase on Tuesday, 5th. March. A Lecturer in Illustration at Plymouth University, Emma gave a fascinating presentation about her career to date and the process of creating picture books to a group of Year 7 and 8 students. We saw the intial sketches for Lion Practice and Bears at the Beach and enjoyed seeing the creative process in action in a series of illustrated notebooks. Students then had the opportunity to show Emma their recent picture book ideas and to work on the creation of a giant story by linking their stories and illustrations together. We all enjoyed a fun and inspiring morning and we very much hope that Emma, a former student here, will visit again when time allows.
