Workshops & Talks

BUT you don't have to miss out on the fun! I’ve got a great set up to be able to provide VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS!
That’s right! Why not book a virtual workshop with me.
I’m very versatile and familiar with most platforms

Book Week, Literacy Festivals,
Art Festivals, Library visits and Incursions are all fantastic times you can book me to visit your school or event!
I'm energetic, fun and love getting your kids engaged!
We draw, we paint, we learn what it is to be an illustrator and how to craft and tell stories visually.
My favourite thing is to show the kids who think they can’t draw is that “yes they can, everyone can!"

A few examples of my workshops
Please note all workshops are tailored specifically to cater for the diverse and individual needs of your students, so each session is unique.
General Illustration Workshops
Within my illustration workshops, students gain an
in-depth view of what it means to be an illustrator, how to become an illustrator and what an illustrator does.
Character Illustration Workshops
How do we start to create a Character?
Kids get taken through my process of creating a character using three simple steps.
Within my visual story telling workshops, older students learn how to break down the entire illustration process
by means of in-depth discussion and activities.
‘Bannockburn Primary School students are still excited – and drawing – following a fantastic week of workshops conducted by Sunshine Herbert. We had a terrific week learning how illustrators work. Sunshine shared her inspiration, technique and passion.
Our children were taken through a structured session focussing on sharing ideas, thoughts and feelings through drawing. We had very excited children drawing wonderful ‘monsters’.

'Hi Sunshine! You went to my daughter’s school today, she’s in Grade 2 (apparently she illustrated a rainbow coloured monster called Bob!?!)
Just wanted to share with you..
As of today – & maybe just for today, or the next week, month – who cares?! – she wants to be an Illustrator!!'
