Touring as part of the 2023 Arts & Education Program
Self-expression | Visual Arts | Media
Led by artist Fingle Sin (aka Reuben Whyte), Comic Art is a drawing workshop focused on character creation. Starting with a background in the artists’ own creative journey, students will become inspired by learning about the history of comics before a fun, high energy and hands-on workshop!
Years F-6: Students learn how to create a simple framework for a convincing character, exploring how playing with facial features can create convincing and often hilarious characters.
Years 7-VCE: Advanced lessons creating more complex faces including simple story boarding and inking techniques. Students can create their own individual artworks or create a collaborative piece together.
Each student receives positive feedback during the workshop, as every young person is unique and how they express themselves visually is always a joy. The highlight of these workshops is discovering what each participant has happening in their life and how they choose to put it on the page. The feedback sessions are funny and engaging and are always the point where we transform from an art class to a team. Comic Art workshops can help connect disjointed classes such as mixed year classes in smaller schools that have trouble integrating.
Workshops can be geared toward a theme or issue as requested. The workshop can meet curriculum requirements with themed comics.
