I just wanted to thank you for spending time with our students today. They thoroughly enjoyed the workshops & it was lovely to see such a spark of enthusiasm in the groups. Thank you for sharing your talent and encouraging our students to explore their own creative abilities.

Thanks for bringing your drawing workshops to CBC. The feedback from both students and teachers has been great, with everyone really enjoying getting involved.
Librarian and Resource Manager, Christian Brothers College
Thank you for running your drawing workshops at Woodcroft Primary. The teachers have all given excellent feedback on your sessions. The children loved their ocean character drawing exercises from your first activity book and they remained focused and engaged in their drawing. They were thoroughly entertained with your method of teaching.
After your class the children spent an afternoon working on the animation exercises from your booklet. This left them with clear instructions on completing the activities and they were super motivated to spend time experimenting with their newly acquired drawing skills.
We would like to have you back again at our school with your second activity book of drawing exercises focusing on Australian megafauna.

The students and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Paul. We loved watching him draw and having a go ourselves. The booklets are a great idea. His messages about conserving our biodiversity were certainly appreciated.

Paul visited the Victor Harbor Library to facilitate an illustration workshop, based around the theme of his book Surf Rider Joe. After the book reading, Paul gave the students an ‘Ocean Sea Creatures’ work book and guided the students through their own drawing of the characters from his storybook. The students loved the workshop and we have never seen every attendee so engaged in an activity.

Paul worked with a group of Year 5 students in a fun-filled and creative drawing workshop. All ability ranges are catered through the use of his unique drawing books that provide frameworks for sketches whilst still allowing for students’ imaginative input. Paul was helpful, encouraging and both the class and their teachers were impressed with his skill as an artist.
