The artist and writer Brian Pilkington visited Landakotsskóli

Brian Pilkington donated some of his drawings to Landakotsskóli

Last week Brian Pilkinton visited the school via Google Classroom. Brian is an artist, illustrator and writer and is well known for his books about the Icelandic Yule Lads. He set up a virtual drawing studio with students from the A group and the 3rd grade. The children were able to talk to him and make requests for him to draw their favourite Christmas characters. Brian made these drawings for the children and they were able to watch him work on the screen. The Icelandic students also got to practice their English, the International students now have a good understanding of Icelandic Christmas traditions.
