Summer School 2021 offers an exciting new line-up of hands-on workshops for adults, delivered by accomplished art practitioners from across Aotearoa.
In this workshop with Ant Sang, you will learn all about comics, encompassing everything from storytelling to graphics. To start, you will write your own short story based on an anecdote or true story from your own life. You will then explore the best ways to frame the story, record details which will bring the story to life and how to draw characters; all the fundamental techniques to effectively tell your story in comic form.
Includes most materials.
