Jeff Nicholas trades his chalkboard for a drawing board as his traveling classroom treks to Ohio's libraries and schools with cartoon character sidekicks and original stories to encourage reading, writing, and drawing from kids and parents alike.
Jeff has brought thirty-five years of teaching into his writing which captures his deepest understanding of a child's view of the world. Each program involves step by step drawing instruction along with original stories to capture the imagination. Jeff presents materials which appeal to audiences of all ages.
Jeff's stories have been told in over 200 libraries and schools in Eastern United States to audiences of enthralled children.
"Each program combines step-by-step drawing lessons for characters with original stories that make children and adults laugh out loud."
Kim Hone-McMahan, Akron Beacon Journal
"The program was a wonderful incentive to bring out the inner child and artist that exists in all of us. Kids and adults were enthralled."
Vicki Shurly, Librarian, Traverse City, Michigan
