Visits, Talks, and Tutoring

- School Visits and Children’s Talks

I offer school visits for all Key Stages.  In the past I've worked with all ages, from pre-school to 6th form. If you let me know your curriculum requirements, I'm happy to formulate workshops/talks based on these.

Past subjects have included; ‘the process of illustrating a text’, ‘storyboarding, page layout, and the relationship between words and pictures, ‘how to work with a literary theme to develop believable characters’, and ‘how to become a children’s book illustrator’

I aspire to spark each child’s imagination by the end of a session.
