School Visits

decoration-dogMake your Book Week activity, library session or Festival a memorable and exciting experience for your class with a visit by Marjory Gardner.

Marjory delivers creative, exciting, interactive presentations that are entertaining and fun and much more.

Her visit can be tailored to any age group, prep to grade six, as well as those studying art in their final years of high school and beyond. All students, in small or large groups, city or country, will have a door opened for them to see into the world of an illustrator. Beyond that, students will gain an understanding and appreciation of the stages of production of a picture book: from first rough layouts to the printed result.

decoration-queenMarjory’s workshops can further engage and involve students by including hands-on drawing exercises; rewarding and enjoyable for children of all abilities, even those who protest “I can’t draw”. These sessions enhance children’s creative and practical skills, and motivate them to develop their own distinctive style.

For the teacher or librarian a visit by Marjory is an ideal way to provide a springboard for future classroom activities, as well as stimulating students’ interest in books, reading and art.

Marjory’s workshops inspire students to see beyond the ordinary, to express their ideas in dynamic and creative ways – all in a supportive and entertaining environment.

Book Marjory to visit your school by contacting her, Creative Net, Booked Out or Speakers Ink (Queensland bookings).
