Creating Characters

Comic artist Jim Medway observes and captures people as unique characters, to create witty portraits and imaginative stories. Jim will bring his techniques into school to help pupils' create profiles and drawings for characters they can develop into stories. Working individually and collaboratively, visual literacy and communication skills will be developed through a series of drawing tasks, games and discussions to share the characters pupils have created.
