Wow! Said The Owl

Wowza_2 by Tim Hopgood

Mrs. Vignaux's class at Portway Infant School, Andover has been busy drawing owls inspired by Wow! Said The Owl. I think their artwork is fabulous. I love the expressions and how the owls all look so different. The use of tissue paper collaged to create layers is very effective and so is the use of chalk and wax crayon on black sugar paper. I'm definitely going to try out this technique at my next school workshop.

It’s five years today since Wow! Said The Owl’ was first published in the U.K. Thank you to everyone who has shared and enjoyed the book so enthusiastically. Here’s a sneak preview of some video footage shot during a recent school visit. More video content will be added to my website over the next few weeks. Wowza!

A big thank you to all the wonderful staff and busy bees at Barnett Wood Primary School, Surrey, especially Headteacher Norma Penny for making my 3 day visit such an enjoyable experience. Also a special thank you to Matthew (We Are Invite) for doing such a great job of capturing everything on video.
