Jenni LOVES visiting schools and sharing the wonderful world of books and illustration with children of all ages! She has been giving school presentations since 2019 and has been lucky enough to speak to thousands of kids over this time!
Jenni's sessions are interactive and informative and tailored to different age groups. Kids will have a chance to see real-life book illustrations, learn about the book making process and have some hands-on creative fun!
Jenni is based in Caves Beach and mostly visits schools in Newcastle and the Hunter Region but also loves travelling to schools further afield.
Jenni charges the industry-standard Rates of Pay as per the Australian Society of Authors (See flyer below, or ASA Rates of Pay). 1 hour travelling time from Caves Beach (each way) is included in her fees.
I was delighted with our school visit by Jenni. Her passion and love for the work she does was inspirational for our students and teachers. During Jenni's visit she engaged our students in interactive sessions that were tailored to the different ages she was speaking to. Jenni's visit reminded our students and teachers about the magic that lies within the pages of a picture book.

We have loved having Jenni visit our high school students to share her knowledge and skills in illustration. She has come on multiple occasions to present for a unit on picture books, and for each visit Jenni has updated her material to remain informative, engaging and interactive. She has run presentations and small group workshops which our students have been excited to be a part of. The students not only enjoy the experience but the content sticks with them! We are looking forward to many more visits in the future!

Jenni shared the creative process with our students and encouraged them to take chances and draw what they were feeling. Our students beamed with pride as they shared their drawings with each other and Jenni. Her passion for art and stories is contagious.
