In this supportive and exciting class we will focus on picture-storytelling inspired by graphic novels, visual diaries and reportage.
Suitable for all levels including beginners.
You will work in a sketchbook on weekly drawing and writing tasks designed to develop skills such as character development, gathering visual research and mining stories from your own life, memories and imagination. We will work on location in interesting local places, and you will produce a vibrant sketchbook full of ideas and stories.
Things you need
Basic materials including a sketchbook will be provided, but students are encouraged to bring additional art materials if they wish.
