Testimonials


Gladly say that the workshops were enjoyed by the children and they were all involved and presented some exceptionally good cartoon characters to share with friends and family.

Phil had good control of the sessions with children fully engaged. This was the second time we had the cartoon workshops and we will be looking to book another session.

Julie – Jamboree Heights OSHC Assistant Coordinator


Phil facilitated a recent cartoon workshop we held for 20 children between the ages of 6 and 15 years old. He arrived early and provided all the utensils needed for the workshop.

Phil had a professional and friendly manner that engaged well with the children. It was a delight to see the finished cartoons, and how excited the children were to be able to produce such great artwork with his encouragement. 

His patience and humour were appreciated as the children were kept occupied for 2 hours.  

We would definitely welcome Phil back for any further cartoon workshops and highly recommend him for any workshops being considered.”

Cathy McCabe – Encircle Community Mentoring Program


The kids really enjoyed your workshop, you made it easy for younger children and challenging for older children but still letting them create their individual drawings which was evident in the result. Well Done!

I think the success of the workshop really worked by picking a theme the children were really interested in. 

Pokémon is popular with the kids at St Matthew’s OSHC! Thanks again it was an “Easy and Fun experience for children prep to year 7”
