Join Jim Medway (lead artist for our family friendly Heroes and Monsters exhibition)for the first day of this two-day art weekend. He'll be introducing you to making your own creative comics.

This weekend course introduces a range of drawing techniques and sketch book work as well as offering an eye-opening insight into the world of comic book art.

Jim will explain his working methods, from finding inspiration
to observation work and on to developing imagery in pencil and inking his drawings.

Demonstrations, discussions and exercises will lead participants through Jim’s
influences and considerations, as well as how Jim inspires and
educates in his school sessions.

There will also be time for reflection, discussion and follow up ideas.

You can see images from last year's workshop on our flickr pages.
