About the Event
Spring term 1
5 Wednesdays: Jan 5th, 12th, (no Comics Club Jan 19th), 26th; Feb 2nd, 9th
As an artist and bookseller at The Alligator's Mouth children's bookshop, I'll be sharing my expertise on comics and graphic novels. Every week, we'll look at a different aspect of the comics creation process and create our own comic strips based on those themes, building up a strong base of knowledge. Towards the end of term, we'll aim to create more finished comic projects, allowing each student to follow their unique interests and imaginations.
I've found that creating comics together is not only a fun way to unleash creativity, but brilliant for developing language and communication skills, and often for boosting confidence.
Ground covered will include...
Mark-making and materials: outlines, textures and shading
Writing speech and narrative: bubbles, captions and expressive lettering
Panelling: drawing panels, using panel shape and size to tell your story
Expressive drawing: facial expressions, animating figures and drawing poses
World-building: creating a fantasy world or setting the scene in reality
Character creation: writing compelling heroes, villains and character goals
... And putting it all together to make amazing comics!
