Graphic Novel Club
Do you love drawing? Is your head full of imaginary worlds? Got an important story to tell? Then the Graphic Novel Club is for you!
Across four Sunday studio sessions, you have the chance to get stuck into storyboarding, sketching characters, and working with pencil, ink and iPads to produce your very own short graphic novels.
How do you build a fantasy world on the page? Are there any superheroes in Darwin? And can I learn to draw like that!? We’ll be figuring out this and more with expert guidance by comic book artist, Jonathon Saunders.
WHEN: 2-4pm Sundays
DATES: Oct 10, 17, 24, 31
WHERE: Casuarina Library
WHO: Anyone aged 13-17
(Includes materials and a light afternoon tea)
Bookings essential, limited places. Register below by October 7 or until booked out.
