Workshop reviews from kids:

from teaching staff:

‘The teachers loved how you interacted with the students even though they were on mute, the pace of the workshop, the step by step instructions ensuring all students had success and your expertise with technology. The students appreciated you acknowledging their work and giving them confidence in their own illustrating abilities. So many were inspired that they worked on their illustrations further after the workshop.’
