Draw a comic character by a children’s book illustrator! (Ages 8-15)
Anyone can do this course, even people who think that cannot draw can excel in this exercise. This is an easy and gentle way to bust your imagination.
To start with, we will be exploring expressive faces and will be looking at different artists and characters as these can be very inspiring!
In this workshop the focus will be on exploring geometrical shapes and sizes. We will explore facial expressions. You will start developing your imagination and creative thinking skills. Usually for character development we need a story but in this workshop we will be spontaneously creating and developing a character and its personality. We will be thinking about a story development for our characters.
Students will learn to explore shapes and proportion, learn about facial expressions and how to exaggerate them.

I become a teacher because I love teaching young people and I am passionate about art. My joy, is to see curiosity and confidence that children gain through the art processes. I have wide experience as a practicing Artist, printmaker and a Children’s Book Illustrator as well as an educator. I am confident in teaching a wide range of skills and techniques in disciplines such as: Drawing and Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Ceramics and creative digital programs. I gained my experience in teaching, working as a supply art teacher in schools within the Bristol area in UK; running workshops in art and teaching art in summer schools to international students . My advantage of being a practising artist -illustrator and a printmaker is that I am fully equipped to teach young people about visual literacy, critical thinking and of course, the essential skills, techniques and theories connected with the subject.
