Thanks for our workshop on Friday.
Our kids were thoroughly engaged, we had kids from all year groups K-6 and they were all enthused form the very beginning.
They loved your humour, everything from pronouncing your name to Rubbix coming into the screen.

From the beginning to the end the children really enjoyed Toonworld. Even alot of the children who were not too fond of drawing got a kick out of the multitude of creative imaginative and unique drawing methods. The children loved the caricatoon activity and really didn’t hold back with the creativity. The younger children seemed more voice about their ideas, and older ones were much happier just sharing off their ideas physically. Tracey was extremely involving and made sure every single child was taking part, which the carers all agree they found very stimulating for the childrens interest to reach its peak. Allin all children and carers enjoyed this activity greatly with not a complaint anywhere !
Thank you very much for the visit.

The ToonWorld incursion was excellent value for money and totally engaging for all the children. We had two groups with close to 30 students in each group and Celese had them hooked in from the first moment. Even our littlies, aged 4 and 5, were able to participate and produce excellent hand drawn cartoons. Celese was tuned in to the children’s needs and set activities to suit. When the children became restless we played a game of Speed Drawing. The precision and expertise of natural artists really came to the fore with this game and every child enjoyed the challenge.We had an easy afternoon once the children had been to their ToonWorld session as they all wanted to practice their newly acquired drawing techniques. I thoroughly recommend this incursion activity for Vacation Care and Child Care services.
