My very favourite author/illustrator is Barbara Reid! She creates wonderful books using plasticine for all of the pictures. Our Friday Art class was spent trying to re-create her pictures using modeling clay. First I went to our school library to borrow all the Barbara Reid books I could. Luckily we have quite a number. Next, as a class, we visited Barbara Reid’s website (www.barbarareid.ca) and watched her tutorials on how to start creating pictures using plasticine. Then we looked through the books to choose a picture we would like to try re-creating.
