In term 2, we will be journeying together into the deepest regions of space as we blast off in the spirit of discovery.

Over the 8 week course, students will be taken through a wide range of skills, from designing characters and space ships to imagining alien life forms and colour theory. Each session will be divided in half with practical skills at the beginning, followed by the application of that new skill into their own journal comic.

This project will help develop collaborate story telling skills, imagination and technical drawing skills.

Comics are an exciting medium that allow creators to tell stories, from small, personal autobiographies, through to massive planet destroying blockbusters. All with the simplest of tools.

In this 8 week general art class, students can expect to gain specialised technical skills from professional practicing artists as well as the freedom, space and encouragement to pursue their own personal unique style. An overarching theme will be explored each term and various 2D materials will be explored in relation to the theme. The work of contemporary and traditional artists will be introduced.

Class sizes are limited to 8 students in order to ensure that each student receives individual help, feedback, and attention. High quality materials are used, and an emphasis is placed on drawing out the unique vision and ability of each child in a fun and supportive environment.
