Using illustrations for teaching and learning about migrant experiences

House of Illustration and Positive Negatives are delighted to invite educators to a very special Teachers’ Twilight Event to celebrate the launch of our brand new teaching resources for Key Stages 2, 3 and 4.

These new resources use illustration techniques for teaching and learning about this important subject. Packed with both inspiration and practical guidance, these cross-curricular resources are completely free to download and ready to use in the classroom.

House of Illustration will launch our KS2 resources, packed with guidance notes, a choice of activities, step-by-step instructions and a slideshow, while Positive Negatives launches their own resources for KS3 and KS4, built around comics and short animations.

These complementary projects address the experiences of unaccompanied young asylum seekers, the dangerous journeys to Europe being undertaken by refugees and the lives of undocumented young people in the UK.

We provide information and activities to explore citizenship, creativity and critical thinking.

Join us for an inspiring evening in the gallery at our special exhibition Journeys Drawn: Illustration from the Refugee Crisis.

The event will feature talks from House of Illustration, Positive Negatives, artist Karrie Fransman and teachers with first-hand experience of using these approaches in the classroom.

Take the opportunity to network with a free drink in hand and gain ideas and inspiration from fellow teachers and education professionals.

I'll hopefully see you there.
I have a copy of Eoin Colfer's book, and also Olivier Kugler's recent book, as well as others such as My name is Not Refugee, and Malala's recent book too.
