Illustrator Mike Wohnoutka does a terrific presentation with students!

He captivates their attention at the very beginning and keeps their interest through the entire presentation. He is a skillful artist with a talent for communicating well with students. I highly recommend Mike for a school visit! Students and teachers walk away smiling.

Our students were mesmerized by Mike Wohnoutka’s drawings and stories about how he became an artist. He had a special way of communicating with the students. His presentations were very appropriate and adapted for whatever grade level he was speaking to. His tips on how to draw let the students know that it is OK to fix and improve their work. Editing makes the work better! Many students were inspired to draw after his visit and they will be talking about Mike for a long time. We give his visit a ten!

Our elementary schools just spent two delightful days with illustrator Mike Wohnoutka. Mike easily varied his presentation to meet the interest level of each group of students. Our staff couldn’t say enough good things about Mike’s presentations. Mike Wohnoutka will certainly be on our list for a return visit!
