Here's what some of our previous clients had to say . . .

"I hired Can Do Academy to host a Claymation Workshop at Seamus Heaney HomePlace in Bellaghy. The workshop was a great success, was fully booked and we received great feedback on the content of the course and the professionalism and knowledge of the tutors. 

At all times, Can Do were a pleasure to deal with and I would be happy to recommend them to any other organisation. Seamus Heaney HomePlace has already booked Can Do again for a workshop in early 2018 and hope to work with you again in the future."

Cathy Brown, Arts Programmer, Seamus Heaney Homeplace

"Can Do Academy has delivered a range of different workshops for Cinemagic and has always produced creative, informative and enjoyable sessions for the young people involved.


They have worked with both primary and post-primary aged children and have a great rapport with participants engaging with them in a fun and professional manner to give them an insight to various aspects of storyboarding and animation"

Claire Shaw, Press & Marketing officer, Cinemagic

"NVTV employed NVTV employed Can Do Academy to facilitate two workshops for the purpose of creating original, youth orientated, engaging content. Can Do displayed excellent communication skills and were fantastic with both the youth groups and the filming process.


Can Do Academy were a pleasure to work with, the facilitators had a strong command over their respective art forms and I would have no hesitation in working with them again in the future."

Connor Mc Kernan, Arts Co-ordinator, NVTV

"Can Do Academy organised and delivered a 5 day animation summer school with 15 young animators (aged 14-19).


Nerve Belfast very much appreciated the value of having the summer school delivered by an industry professional with over 25 years experience. Throughout the 5 days, Joel Simon was an inspiring tutor who put the participants at ease and dealt with all of their questions and enquiries with patience and care.


In their feedback to us at the end of the summer school, the participants commented on the facilitators personal warmth and supportive attitude, the attention to detail in his teaching style and his natural ability to communicate his sheer love of the artform of animation to everyone in the room."

Marty Melarky, Director, Nerve Belfast

"We worked with Can Do Academy as part of our Summer Programme at the F.E. McWilliam Gallery & Studio, Banbridge. The two workshops offered, iPad Photo Manipulation and Lego Animation, were both very popular and all participants had a fantastic time. 


We have since had parents inquiring if we will be running the workshops again as they were also very impressed with the workshops."

Dr Riann Coulter, Curator, FE Mc Williams Gallery

"Can Do Academy have been providing digital animation workshops for our Festival Family Day since 2019. We have found them professional, understanding of the needs of our audience and easy to work with. And our audiences have really enjoyed the workshops."

Kelly-Anne Collins, YOUNG AT ART Festival Director
