Children are Our Heroes
Our world centres on children as heroes. Through the freedom of creative expression and teamwork, our cartooning workshops unleash a child’s pure heart and set them free to draw and express themselves without any judgement.
Toonworlds Cartooning Workshops are a unique space where children can flourish and truly be themselves. Whether your child is a little shy, maybe a perfectionist or even on the spectrum – our Toonpreneurs have all the required experience and our classes are designed for all.
With workshops completed all over Australia and internationally Toonworld has helped thousands of children and we have just celebrated our 8th anniversary.
One of our hero’s used to suffer perfectionism paralysis before joining Toonworld’s cartooning workshop. Charlie’s inspiring story from his mother is below.
“I just wanted to share a moment from late last year that was a bit of a “moment” for Charlie. He definitely has perfectionist traits and finds it hard when things don’t turn out the way he had imagined, but he came home from school with a drawing to show me. I praised his efforts and asked if it was a train on a train track, he replied that it was as they were supposed to draw something they enjoyed doing, then he became thoughtful for a moment then said “well, it was supposed to be us having a picnic in the park…but I didn’t like how the picnic rug turned out… so I made it a train track.” His smile was priceless. This might be “no big deal” for some kids but, in the past, he might have become so frustrated at his self-interpreted “failure” that he might have destroyed the drawing, refusing to try again. I enjoyed this moment so much…and it was the first of many. I love that the messages he is learning in Toonworld are carrying over into his real-world experiences and giving him a different perspective on the wonders of creativity and the straight-jacket of perfection. Thank you Mike and Claudio for all your efforts in sharing these skills with kids”
