Event description

Description

Peter Rabbit, Paddington Bear, The Cat in the Hat, The Tiger Who Came To Tea, all beloved animal characters we grew up with. Whether it’s hopping away from a predator or it's on its hind legs wearing a suit, animal characters are probably the most appealing to children because they are visually attractive and easily relatable. But when are they suitable for a story, and how to make their scale and proportions work? In this workshop, you will analyse the different layers of anthropomorphism existing in characters we all know and learn how to apply them to the ones you create.

Outline: Start with introductions, then move on to some teaching and off to the practice exercises. There will be a 15 minute break for tea in the middle of the session. Some review and direction is offered at the end if wanted.

Who is this workshops suited for?

Everyone who wants to learn new drawing techniques and develop their skills and style, and most importantly have fun drawing. For beginners and experienced artists.

This workshop is child and teen friendly, so feel free to bring your kids (age 7+)

What to bring?

Your favourite media, a black fine liner pen or a black marker, and your sketchbook. We will have coloured pencils, crayons, black sharpies, and paper available. Also tea and biscuits for a break.
