Comic Art Classes
Our AFTER SCHOOL COMIC ART CLUB for kids has now been runing successfully for a few years. We teach the students the basic skills required for comic artists to draw their favourite comic characters or create their own characters and books. Basics such as pencils, colouring materials and paper will be provided for the art classes but you are welcome to bring your own art materials if you prefer.
Classes are currently offered for ages 8 -16. We also offer comic book art classes for both individual 1-to-1 lessons and School visits, please enquire for more details and costs.

Classes are bookable in block sessions at a cost of £45 per block (limited spaces are available and are allocated on a first come first served basis – due to class size limitations bookings are non-refundable).
Classes concentrate on the basic drawing skills required and focuses on how to draw specific items, character types, anatomy etc. through walk through tutorials.
Examples of lessons covered in Level 1 classes include:
- How to draw the human face
- anatomy and proportions
- dynamic poses

Classes require at least a reasonable level of drawing ability and an understanding of the basics of anatomy, perspective etc. This class is task and project based where the students work more independently and have more freedom to interpret the brief.
