Join author and illustrator Mary Richards for hands-on activities inspired by her new guided journal

This interactive workshop encourages children to think about holidays, travel and all the creative ideas that can spring from visiting new places. Together Mary and the group will also talk about St Ives, its art, and the special qualities of this tiny seaside village that became the home of so many modern artists. Each child will be given a copy of Mary's new book, Take Me On Holiday.

The innovative, interactive Take Me On Holiday is divided into five 'adventure' chapters. Children start a new adventure at the beginning of each holiday. Within each chapter, there's space for them to plan and research their trip, document the journey and record memorable days out.


Writer and illustrator Mary Richards is author of The Modern Art Journal (Tate Publishing), Splat: The Most Exciting Artists of All Time (Thames & Hudson) and co-author of ArtSongs, a set of songs about art and artists (with David Schweitzer) for Tate. Mary was Art Publisher at the Hayward Gallery and a Project Editor at Tate Publishing. She is the founder of new children's publisher Agnes & Aubrey.
