Tiz and Ott are drawing themselves a house. With the scritch scratch of her crayon, Tiz busily plants some seeds for the garden. Meanwhile Ott lies back lazily and makes a huge splodge for the sun. Then Tiz has a big idea. With a zig, a zag and a crash, she jolts Ott awake with a huge bolt of lightning! Together Tiz and Ott whip up a storm but as they soon find out, a storm isn’t just lines on a page.
Get carried away with Tiz and Ott as they use their imaginations to brush and doodle and scribble and scrawl and splatter their way out of trouble and safely back home.
See this 80 second film of kids drawing at my big Tiz & Ott draw event in Tate Britain. After I read the story of how Tiz and Ott got carried away drawing and painting, these brilliant young artists grabbed brush pens and crayons and in less than an hour Tiz and Ott had their own pop-up gallery in the museum!
