Comic Arts: Environments and Backgrounds is an INTRODUCTORY workshop for kids ages 8-12 years old.
In this workshop we will be talking about the things going on behind (or sometimes in front) of your characters - the background. Love them or hate them, they can really help you set the scene in your comic. We will show you how to put in a background, and some tips and tricks to fill your comic panels with the elements of an environment without having to draw them in every panel (because that can be a lot of work!) We will also cover some basic information about perspective in drawing.
Please bring sketchbook and pens or pencils of your choice. The instructor will provide scrap paper, pencils, basic colouring tools.
Pre-registration is required. Registration closes 24 hours prior to the event. Space is limited, register early!
