Mark is professional and personable and presents an excellent program. He knows how to break things down so each child has success in what they are creating. He has been very accommodating and works with you to meet your needs. Kids were learning, laughing and sharing their work with enthusiasm.'s picture

We had Mark out for back-to-back programs this summer and he was a hit with both kids and parents (we had a few adults sit in to our K-2 program). Mark was extremely responsive via email and a pleasure in person. Programs were engaging, fun and age-appropriate for the skill-level. Would highly recommend if you are looking to add an art program to your schedule.'s picture

We love Mark at HPPL. Mark is great with kids and they really learn a lot during his programs! The Alphabet Animals program we hosted was very well received - especially because so many workshops do not accommodate kids at this age level. We have also had him for the Creative Cartooning workshop which was excellent. We use his tutorials for our DIY drawing tables and kids enjoy being able to follow the steps on their own as well. He even left our whiteboard in better condition than when we started with his magic cleaner!
