Last week I was volunteering at the Ministry of Stories with 10-13 year olds on a project creating an eight page newspaper called Hoxton A.M. My job was to teach the kids about illustration, help them with their illustrations and to do illustrations for them when they didn’t have the time (as it was primarily a writing workshop).
One of the exercises I did with them was to get them to illustrate the phrase ‘The Pen is Mightier than the Sword’, as I thought it would be great to get them really thinking about what words mean and how they can visualise them.
Hoxton A.M. will be launched on May 9th and will be circulated in the free Hackney Citizen. Hope you can get your hands on a copy!
Also, I got the internship at Don’t Panic! I’ll be joining them tomorrow and it lasts for three months, bringing me nicely up to the summertime.
