The students enjoyed cartooning while the stories developed from their artwork.

I heard a lot of positive feedback from your visit. The Teachers were amazed at your ability to pull the story into your drawings. The children (all ages, K -8) enjoyed listening and learning from you!

[J.D.] is very well suited to working with children. His education information and cartooning were very appropriate and very well received by our students.

The students and teachers thoroughly enjoyed the presentations.

Yes, he’s a cartoonist but J.D. Williamson in also much, much more. He possesses a rich blend of drawing talent and historical knowledge, which appeals to students of all ages. J.D.’s program ‘The Secret of Silence Dogwood - Young Ben Franklin’ combines both the arts and humanities, and teaches not only drawing but American history. J.D. Williamson was voted their favorite artist in residence of our Colonial Year Program. I recommend him highly.
