“Tarsila tailored the workshop for us specifically, she was extremely accommodating and pleasant to deal with, I will be booking her again in the future!”
Aoife O'Toole - dlr Mill Theatre
 “The workshop was interactive and the children produced some interesting pieces themselves using Tarsila’s Quick Drawing Cheat Sheet.”
Mrs. Lawlor - St. Joseph’s Primary School in Gorey
“Tarsila was great, couldn’t fault her workshop in any way. She was just that little bit different and the children loved her! She brought out the best in all of the kids, even the quiet kids, was well able to interact with the crowd and read them so well. It really was a pleasure having her in Roscommon as part of the Bookworms Festival!!”
