These popular comics and illustration 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 schools, SEND settings and other arts & cultural settings.
‘A really engaging day – the children loved it and produced some really high quality art work! Thank you so much Emily!’ Sinead Costello, Teacher, Fleet Primary School, Hampstead.
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, the Stone Age and World Book Day. For information on my Artsmark provision please click here.
In a typical session I will show the group my portfolio and how I create characters. I’ll introduce them to some inspiring illustrated fiction then do a step-by-step character drawing tutorial. I’ll take the group through the fundamentals of character creation, then support them in creating original characters and comic strips or picture book plans.

Fees vary depending on how many workshops are booked during a day and the distance I will need to travel. I include a printable ‘learn to draw’ activity sheet to use as you wish and a tip sheet for teachers to support pupils with creating comics. Sessions usually last 1 hr – 1 hr 30 mins.
