Atmospheric Buildings with Stick and Ink

Set the scene for a story, just like Quentin Blake.

Ink is a brilliant material for drawing. As you can’t rub lines out, it encourages boldness with often beautiful results. The perfect tool for mark-making with ink? A cheap, snapped-in-half bamboo stick.

In this activity, you’ll use your newfound ink skills as a book illustrator just like our founder Sir Quentin Blake, setting the scene for a story with a building of your own invention.

Subject focus: English, Literacy, Art & Design

Designed for ages 7-11.
