The children loved Mark Wilson. He kept their attention, answered their questions and they loved the drawing workshop. There was a good balance of talking and doing. Mark was certainly good value. He lived up to expectations and was aware that the children were very interested in his life and books. They had many questions about his books as we had discussed them beforehand. I liked that he was in touch with me before he came to ensure his talk was what we wanted. He also made good on his promise to send us a book… he signed all our copies of his books before he left! Many thanks.
Marks workshops are most enjoyable, addressing environmental issues in a fascinating manner as well as encouraging the students to look more deeply at their local surroundings. Excellent!
The session with Mark was fantastic. His approach to the students and his presentation were excellent. He tapped into their interests to really engage them.
The children were totally engaged with Marks wonderful picture book workshops. We can’t wait to see him again next term.
It was interesting, funny, cool, and Mark is a talented and exciting author/illustrator. Great stories!"
Mark was a fascinating speaker who really kept the kids engaged. A very successful presentation and enriching day. Keep up the good work Mark!
Students, teachers and parents left Mark’s sessions with a thorough understanding of and respect for the processes involved in the making of a picture book. To complete the sessions, Mark’s step by step instructions resulted in all students creating some amazing work.
