PRLog - Nov. 26, 2010 - PETERSFIELD, U.K. -- Children at Dunannie, Bedales pre-prep school, enjoyed a particularly creative week starting with a visit from children's illustrator, Jane Ray. Jane, who is the artist behind the beautiful illustrations in books such as 'The King of Capri' and 'The Doll's House Fairy' spent a day with Dunannie talking about her illustrations and inviting the children to get involved in drawing too. In addition to showing the children her art work, Jane conducted a drawing workshop with children from Reception to Year 3.

On Friday the children found creative ways to wear spots to raise money for BBC Children in Need. Sporting spotty faces and clothes, children paid a £1 each for the privilege of being spotty for the day. They also enjoyed spotty cupcakes at break-time and a spotty disco organised by a Dunannie pupil and managed to raise a total of £150.

Commenting on the week, Jo Webbern, Head of Dunannie, said: "Jane Ray's illustrations are beautiful and the children's eyes lit up as they explored the books, it was fascinating for them to meet the creator of the pictures and to learn a few techniques for drawing themselves. Friday was also a great day and, as well as having fun, our pupils learnt more about the causes supported by Children in Need and how fundraising will help the lives of other children."
