Personal Heroes

Do you have a personal hero? Someone you’re a really big fan of? Or do you want to invent someone with a special blend of superpowers and sensitivities that match your own? At this workshop, we will draw cartoon portraits of some of our most admired people, and then test their mettle in a multi-panel comic. Bring a photo to base your real-life hero on, or use your imagination. This workshop suits a younger audience – 7-12 years old.

Limited spaces available - please book via eventfinda here.

Bring your favourite art supplies to use - some basic materials will be available.
