Power of Pictures training
Created: 29th October, 2019

Our Power of Pictures course returns in the New Year…

On 28th October we announced that our Power of Pictures course is returning on 22nd January 2020. With a brand new author/illustrator leading the course, Joe Todd-Stanton, alongside CLPE’s learning programmes leader Charlotte Hacking.

The course will take place over two and a half days where participants will learn about the craft of picturebook making in developing children as readers and writers with a greater depth of understanding about the writing process.

This course is based on the 6-year research project which found that giving children the opportunity to explore their creativity through art and supporting them to learn through picturebooks, has a direct and positive impact on children’s literacy.
