Bright Sparks presents the author and illustrator team, Síne Quinn and Margaret Anne Suggs, for a free, online, family friendly Creative Celebration of Spring on St Patrick’s Day, Wednesday, 17 March, at 11am. Suggs will present some drawings that are based on simple shapes but combine to make a complete drawing. Next Quinn will help you compose your own creative story to accompany your new illustrations!

Suitable for ages 7+. Family friendly.
Materials Needed: A3 drawing paper (several sheets per person) and a selection of coloured markers.

She is the illustrator for the best-selling, award-winning Pigín of Howth series with Kathleen Watkins. Her most recent book is Holy Shocking Saints: The Extraordinary Lives of Twelve Irish Saints with Síne Quinn.
