Pete McKee's Cartoon Workshop for Beginners!

Pete McKee is a well known artist from Sheffield and...

"Pete will be posting cartoon workshop lessons every Wednesday starting tomorrow, for the next few weeks. As he has done similar workshops before, which have always been well-received, we thought this would be a nice way to offer children, and adults too, something fun and creative to help break up the day, keeping young minds active in addition to their school work. Anyone can take part in these videos which will be uploaded to the Pete McKee YouTube channel. All you’ll need is a few pieces of paper, or whatever’s lying around, card, scrap paper etc., and some pencils or pens. The videos will be posted at 12pm tomorrow for whoever is interested!"

Here is the link to the YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/ channel/ UCjpNMIjkGJ-vxuOhsN2xxTA

Free Audible Stories

Just thought I would share this from Audible:

Starting today, for as long as schools are closed, kids everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being kids.

All stories are free to stream on your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet. Explore the collection, select a title and start listening.
It's that easy.

Virtual Museum Tours

This link below is to a website that has links to twelve famous museums from around the world that all have online, virtual tours. Google Arts & Culture’s collection includes the British Museum in London, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Guggenheim in New York City, and literally hundreds more places where you can gain knowledge about art, history, and science. Now, you get to “go to the museum” and never have to leave your house. I am sure you will all be able to find something of interest.
