An art adventure with Pablo and his friends

This Live Lesson for 5-7s was created in collaboration with the 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 Pablo's imagination, just about anything can happen.

In this Live Lesson, hosted by Cbeebies presenters Joanna Adeyinka-Burford and Ben Cajee pupils are guided through fun drawing exercises with the help of Pablo Art Director Bob Price.

Children learn how to recognise different facial expressions and emotions before being encouraged to draw their own character in the style of Pablo.

This edited programme was first streamed live to schools in October 2016.

Pablo Activity 1: Happy and Sad expressions

Pablo Activity 2 : Annoyed and surprised expressions

Pablo Activity 3: Draw your own character
