About My Interactive Programs

My programs are for children of all ages; they are designed to promote art and literacy. I share my experience and love for children's books, and introduce various styles and techniques. I display original art and explain the process of developing a book from start to finish. I also encourage character development through interactive group activty; sketching out the children's ideas. This allows them to create a narrative based on that character. This is encouraging, inspiring and instills visual expression, storytelling and writing.

I'll be happy to accommodate your needs in scheduling different grade levels and times.  If required, I can provide multiple programs in a single day, or week-long workshops.  Please contact me with your requirements.

Some schools offer the opportunity for parents to pre-order copies of my books for the children to have autographed on the day of the program. This can be done by the school through your local book store, or I can pre-order the books and bring them along. An order form can be found here
