Presentations Lively, interactive assemblies -- an exploration of the creative process, the presentation starts with Tim doing original drawings and discussing how the ideas for his stories begin. A slideshow follows, showcasing sketches, paintings, writings and some personal touches, furthuring the discussion of how the process evolves. The last twenty minutes or so is spent with Tim drawing ideas pulled from the audience, in a back and forth creative session in which the beginnings of an original story begin to appear. All original drawings are left with the school/organization. Laughter is not only permitted but encouraged. Q&A finishes the program for the last few minutes (except for the very young ones, in which case we just draw a little more...) Approx. 45 minutes.
