#Pictures Mean Business With Sarah McIntyre and friends

Part of Imagine Children's Festival

Join in at #PicturesMeanBusiness with Stephen Collins, Katherina Manolessou & David O’Connell, hosted by Sarah McIntyre

Get your pencils ready to draw with four of Britain’s top illustrators and cartoonists. Watch as they introduce you to their favourite characters and teach you how to draw them, then help them create a story with pictures right in front of your eyes. Bring your sketchbooks, or some paper and pencils will be provided. Fun for the whole family.

Check out or the #PicturesMeanBusiness Twitter hashtag to find out more about Sarah McIntyre’s campaign to show how everyone wins when illustrators are properly credited for their artwork.
