These popular workshops encourage reading for pleasure and concentration, teach art skills and develop the imagination. The age range is from reception to teen, and the sessions are suitable for children with learning difficulties.
‘A wonderful two days! All classes were engrossed in their workshops, Emily engaged all age groups well and everyone was inspired to have a go – even the adults! Definitely the highlight of our Book week.’ Sarah Johnson Head of Year 6, St Martin’s C of E Primary School, Folkestone
Choose from comics, illustration or picture book workshops with optional curriculum themes such as heroes and villains, myths and legends, ancient Greece, Chinese New Year, Stone Age and World Book Day.
In a typical session I will show the group my portfolio, introduce them to some inspiring illustrated fiction, teach them to draw a character step-by-step, take them through the fundamentals of character creation, help them to create original characters, then comic strips or picture book plans on provided templates.
