ART MATERIALS

Please feel free to bring along your own sketchbooks and preferred drawing/colouring equipment such as pencils, colouring pens, crayons, etc. (but don’t panic we will have spare for those that forget).

I’ve listed some of the materials I regularly use here but you can get alternative versions of everything at other stationery/art stores, supermarkets, etc. The High school class has a more task-based approach, so please make sure that your child brings a device of some sort that they can do research on if required.

Our AFTER SCHOOL COMIC ART CLUB for kids has now been running successfully for over six years. We teach children the basic skills required to draw their favourite comic characters or create their own characters and books in a relaxed and fun environment.

We also offer comic book art classes for both individual 1-to-1 lessons, libraries, community groups, and School visits, please enquire for more details and costs.
