CBeebies Pablo - Live Lesson

Please click the link above to watch the CBeebies Pablo - Live Lesson. Our Live Lessons EXTRA programme will be available on Monday, 4th December.

An adventure through art and design with Pablo and his friends.

This Live Lesson is in collaboration with the new CBeebies series Pablo - the first animated TV series to star an autistic character and the first TV programme with an all-autistic core cast. Pablo uses his magic crayons to turn his life challenges into fantastic adventures and his feelings into colourful characters with a voice - in the art of his imagination, just about anything can happen!

During the lesson, students are tasked with a selection of drawing exercises – drawing along with Bob Price, Pablo’s Art Director. Programme one focuses on how to draw different facial expressions/emotions, culminating in an exercise in which students create their own character, drawing in the style of Pablo. The EXTRA lesson will focus on self-portraits and drawing styles of different artists in addition to answering more of your questions.This lesson is aimed at 5-7 year olds:

• Year 1 and Year 2 pupils in England and Wales
• Primary 1, Primary 2 pupils in Scotland
• P1 and P2 pupils in Northern Ireland
