Brian has appeared on Brisbane Community Television station Bris 31 Digital on its creative arts program Put Some Colour in Your Life. Brian has shown thousands of children in hundreds of Australian schools how to ‘Draw for Fun”. The 30 minute episode he featured in demonstrated just a few of the many simple, professional drawing tips that Brian teaches in classroom workshops. His aim is to get everybody’s pencil swinging in seconds, particularly those young children and teens who believe they can’t draw. Students have a lot of creative fun too!

  • Brian was fabulous, he kept the children engaged the whole time and they were delighted with the drawings they created with him. I was very impressed with how enthusiastic he was about being with us. This is the first time we have had Brian and I would have had him sooner at Unity!

  • Brian was fantastic with our children! He arrived promptly well within time and was very organised. The first group were a little hesitant to join in but with encouragement they did and as a result, they really enjoyed themselves. There were a few vocal children who helped to get the others motivated and Brian drew on this to try and engage every child in the group. He spoke quietly and clearly and used language that the children could all relate to. He listened carefully to their ideas and tried to incorporate each one in the drawing he was teaching. Although our groups were small (about 12 – 15 children at a time) Brian was able to keep them focussed and mesmerised for the entire session – even some of our very young 3 and 4 year olds! I was also watching to see the reaction of the parents looking on and all were smiling and happy to see their children engaged in this way. All the children were eager to show their parents and grandparents what they had learned. I was also impressed that Brian took the time before the sessions started to ask me about Kumon and what it is that we were celebrating.

  • We love having Brian here - the students still talk about him from two years ago, so were very excited when they found out he was coming back this year.
