Listen to the Laureate!
Have you treated your eyes to the fabulous Christmas windows at Hodges Figgis Dawson Street yet? If you haven’t had a chance to enjoy Niamh Sharkey’s beautiful designs read all about it here. Niamh had the help of lots of children in putting together the art for the window, and she’ll be making art again this weekend with lots of small people and RTÉjr Radio! RTÉ’s dedicated children’s radio station, RTÉjr Radio, will broadcast a live illustration workshop for children with Laureate Na nÓg, Niamh Sharkey, on its Little Pages programme on RTÉjr Radio and via a live stream on the RTÉjr Radio website on Sunday 9 December at 9am.
The Little Pages Christmas Doodle Special invites children and their parents to tune in and create their own illustrated story with the help of Niamh Sharkey, who will be doodling some pictures from her Christmas book ‘Santasaurus’ and telling the story as she goes. Niamh will also be showing young web viewers how to make cards that they can give to their family and friends this Christmas.
All children need to take part is some colouring pencils, paper and a little imagination! This online and interactive Christmas special is a great way to get young listeners creative during this festive season.
So tune in to RTÉjr Radio and join Little Pages presenter Gráinne Clear and Laureate Na nÓg Niamh Sharkey and learn how creates a magical, colourful Christmas world.
