Rod Lara's Mime Workshops have been quite popular in both primary schools, high schools and performing arts schools.
Rod will scaffold student learning in the art of mime by facilitating various drama-based games and activities. He begins this process with a focus on the basics before working towards the more advanced techniques.
The workshops he offers may be for one session, or there can be a module of 45 minute classes over an entire day or several weeks.

Testimonial from a Penola Catholic College student (15/08/17):
"The incursion included songs with French instruments, sing-a-long songs, awesome dances that everybody joined in, and best of all, a real mime artist! He mimed to us many adventures and soon had all of us laughing, he was very convincing indeed!
Overall, it was an amazing and educational experience. Thank you."
