I loved Adrienne’s beginner’s course – I came to it because I was a bit burnt out in my own creative practice and bit swamped by the ubiquitous uncertainty of these times. Having no connection with children’s lit, I was interested to see if engaging with different methodologies and practice would be inspiring – Times a million it was! Adrienne’s organization and exercises, her sharing of her experience, her process, and her amazing work (including work-in-prog), her encouragement and insight into the biz of kids’ lit – Just fantastic. A really well put together course by a world-class, award-winning children’s author and illustrator, I cannot recommend it highly enough. In summary – the super-well thought out exercises and progression of the course, the inspiration of seeing how Adrienne manifests her creativity and the icing on the cake – the engagement with the other (international) students – who were all so inspiring, funny and full of ideas – made this not just an exceptional learning experience – but, personally, a great survival tonic at this time. I learned so much I can apply to my own (entirely different) work going forward. It really re-ignited things for me. Thank you Adrienne Geoghegan. Final comment: For what I got out of it – Fabulous Value!read more

I attended Adrienne’s follow on picture book course in March after doing a picture book course with her years ago! It was a great refresher and update on the picture book world. Everyone in the class was able to bring their ideas for their books and we did a number of exercises to push our thinking and had group critiques where everyone could give their input. It was super inspiring and I definitely feel more focused on completing my book. I highly recommend Adrienne’s classes!read more

Can’t recommend Adrienne’s courses highly enough! Early this year, I attended her Picture Book for Beginners-Intermediate course, followed by the Advanced Picture Book course. After the first course, I made a huge leap with a story that’d be floating around my head for years — thanks to a very hands-on exercise Adrienne shared! The advanced course helped me to crystallise a goal around creating and selling my book, and I am so much further along in my journey towards that aim. These courses are practical, fun and draw upon Adrienne’s many years of experience as an author, illustrator and artist who has a deep understanding of the picture-book publishing business.read more

I attended Adrienne’s week-long follow on picture book class in March. It was a great experience, we had enlightening discussions on each student’s picture book as well as useful exercises to take our books to the next level. After attending the class I felt I had made significant strides forward with my own book and I also feel encouraged to keep charging ahead. Thank you Adrienne!read more

It was my first time taking a course of illustration (This time was the Picture Book Camp of Adrienne). I learned so much about different techniques, different media and layout, also how to build storyboards and to develop character design! Very happy with what I got, now I am building my own brand based on all the new thing Adrienne taught me. Absolutely recommend 🙂read more

I recently attended 5 sessions of a one-to-one Picture Book refresher course with Adrienne. It was done via zoom. We had zero issues communicating via zoom. The course was exactly what I needed to boost my creativity and streamline my ideas. Adrienne’s expertise in the art of Picture Book creation is second to none. I would highly recommend her courses, be it one-to-one or group courses.read more
