I recently ran a series of comics making workshops at the Ellenbrook library in conjunction with Awesome Arts. We investigated how comics function, what the core components of comics are, different comics styles from around the world, ideas generating and then finally making our own mini comic.
In the above photos, one of the workshop attendees is working from her “inspiration book”, which in this case is Nicki Greenberg’s adaptation of Hamlet. (a personal favorite of mine) We also used Nicki’s illustration style as a reference point when doing the group activity “Everything is a Remix”, which you can see on the white board.
If any libraries our school out there are interested in having me come in, shoot me an email.
