Comic making workshops for children

I use my own drawings as examples in the workshops. Here is some character development work for 'Rosie'.
I haven't posted on this blog recently because I've been busy developing and delivering comic making workshops for children. Tomorrow I'll be leading the first of six one hour Comics Club workshops for 9-12 year olds at Carnegie Library in London SE24, it's fully booked and there is already a waiting list for the next time I run it - I'll post with more information about this soon but it won't be until next year.

There are still places available on my Make your own comic! workshop for 9-13 year olds on October 27 in Notting Hill, London. It runs from 1.30 to 4.30pm and numbers are limited - book in advance on the Chelsea Young Writers website. More information about this workshop is on my main website www.crazypanda.com. I'll be taking the children through the basics of creating characters, a synopsis, a script and their own comic.

It's great fun to work with children on comics and I've been delighted by their enthusiasm for this form of telling stories. So nice to spend time with people who love comics as much as I do!
