“Clear, easy steps for children to follow – made them feel successful. Concepts and method will be easily applied to other animals, figures, etc. Shape, proportion, line and shade were integrated well.” (Y3-4) Amy Lee, Huapai District School.

“Excellent organisation, clear instructions, ensuring all children achieved success. Excellent follow up unit for teachers” (Y5-6) Di Scott, D.P. Hampden St School, Nelson.
