I am available for school and library visits in the Toronto area and occasionally farther afield.

picture book theatre

Presentations include a slide show discussion of the illustrator’s many roles in the visual production of a story, including (but not limited to) director, set designer and actor!

Can be followed by an exploration of various pencil techniques (demonstrated digitally) that can be used to add textural interest and emphasize mood in illustrations.

Or can be combined with:

the magic pencils workshop

Unleash the potential of the lowly pencil as we explore the possibilities of line, cross hatching, shading, and real-life textures to bring depth and complexity of colour to your artwork.

My fees are in line with the Canada Council for the Arts’ recommended rates as suggested by CANSCAIP.
