Coleambally Central School received a special visit from author and illustrator Dr Cameron Stelzer, who demonstrated sketching and illustration techniques, as well as writing workshops.
Dr Stelzer is known for his internationally award-winning series Pie Rats, The Stroogle, and Scallywags. He has also published a number of how-to-draw books.
Students looked at methods for writing blockbuster action stories, and how to create tension within a story.
They also participated in a follow-along Sea Dog drawing activity.
On the day, children also engaged in an interactive screen book reading, and worked on their own inventive creation; a hybrid of two animals.
Kindergarten students, and years one through six, were invited to participate in the activities of the day.
Coleambally Central School said it was a “fun and informative day for all involved and we thank Dr Cameron for coming to our school.
