Speaking to Readers


Skype

Large group presentations by the author are often combined with art workshop sessions during a day's visit to a school. At times a partial day at a school is combined with an evening presentation for the community at the school or at a public library. Colin's presentations are also well suited for writers and readers conferences.

Invite an Illustrator to Your Community -- Stimulate Reading and Reading Comprehension. Activate the visual elements of the reading process.

Bootman shares his artistic process in creating illustrations from the first reading of a manuscript (his own or the manuscripts of others) to the finished illustrations.  His art is influenced by is life's experiences including his early childhood, and recent years in Trinidad. 

Colin Bootman is willing to speak to large groups or to provide workshop presentations to classroom-sized groups.  He brings a message of perseverance and success that comes from a belief  in one's self.  He is an accomplished artist who is adept at sharing his enthusiasm for art and for books.
