Cartooning, Drawing and Beyond

With Stephen Harrison

Part of Sunday Series: Drawing

1-3pm Sunday 21 February 2021

$90 per person

Includes all materials.
This workshop is part of a focused series on drawing, taught by an array of professional artists. You can enrol in one, two or as many workshops from the series as you like.

This is a fun workshop catering for all skill levels of drawing and cartooning. We will get a brief overview of cartoon classics and focus on a few simple characters. We can then move onto creating our own characters and jokes and develop those into panel comics. These can be developed into making personalised greeting, Christmas or birthday cartoon cards. We will finish up the workshop with some fun and engaging group drawing exercises. We will use classic cartooning materials including black felt tip pens in various sizes and colouring-in pencils and markers. Participants can expect to leave with a variety of finished artworks, including greeting cards and inspiration to draw more comics.
