I design my comics and illustration workshops to tie in with curriculum topics of your choice. The sessions have the power to engage pupils with writing, character creation and drawing in addition to their current topic.
- Age range KS1-4
- Suitable for schools, SEND settings and other arts & cultural settings.
I’d like to offer flexibility with workshop bookings to support you during this uncertain time. Bookings can be pencilled in and will need to be confirmed a minimum of two weeks ahead of the date. This will include school visits and online sessions.
‘I just wanted to say a big thank you from myself and Year 5 for your amazing workshop today. The children absolutely loved it, so much so that some of them asked to stay inside to continue their work at break! We all learnt lots and the children are looking forward to using these skills in upcoming lessons this week.’ Grace Stone, Prep 5 Class Teacher, Spring Grove School, Wye
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, Black History Month or a topic of your choice. I also provide sessions for World Book Day and literacy/arts weeks.
In a typical session I show the group my portfolio and demonstrate how I create characters. I introduce them to some inspiring illustrated fiction then teach them to draw a character step-by-step. I take the group through the fundamentals of character creation, then support them in creating original characters and either comic strips or picture book plans.
I now provide online sessions to your classroom which can include a live drawing demo for the class to follow and a question and answer session along with character and comic creation. I can also provide workshops to your home learning pupils through your meeting software.

Please contact me with your booking query for more information and pricing. A discounted rate is available for full day bookings, which can include four sessions with different year groups and topics. I include a printable ‘learn to draw’ activity sheet to use as you wish and a guidance sheet for teachers to support pupils in creating comics. email@example.com or +44 (0)7845 394636.
I’m also an Arts Award Adviser and an Artsmark partner. Information on my Artsmark provision can be found here.
‘What I really enjoyed was the level of challenge that followed the introductory task. Everyone was fully engaged and seemed to gain confidence as the session progressed. There was a very happy, industrious atmosphere in the room.’ Naomi James, Teacher, Old Palace Preparatory School , Croydon.
