Art to collect and colour with PICTURA!


Help to create a giant colouring wall and discover how Helen and Niroot developed the art which can be completed in the Pictura books. Niroot Puttapipat spent his childhood drawing, reading and acting out stories, leading to a lifelong interest in history, art, literature and the natural world. Niroot's Faeries is a modern day reminder of the golden age of illustration. On side B, you can follow the story of a chance encounter with faeries. His delicate and romantic figures would sit comfortably alongside those of Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac. Helen Ward has won many awards as both author and illustrator of children's books for twenty years. Her natural history drawings are packed with accurate detail and are full of emotion. Helen's Hedgerow Year PICTURA offers a glimpse into the life of the English countryside, with each season described along its length. On side B, you can learn about each element of flora and fauna and draw your own country scene. ‘Ward is an illustrator of exceptional talent' (Books for Keeps). Suitable for ages 12+
