Tuesday 9th September we were fortunate enough to host a visit from an author and illustrator courtesy of YABBA. Our author was Adam Wallace. Adam travelled to Hamilton and ran two session, one for us and one for Baimbridge College, as we had put in a joint application to win an author visit.
The audience of 55 was the largest Adam had ever addressed and he was very pleased with the level of student engagement. The session ran in two parts: writing techniques and drawing techniques. Many helpful hints about publishing and getting work published were woven into the discussion. There was also time for Adam to circulate and address individual questions, or comment on creations.
