Children’s Workshop: Creating Illustrated Characters (7-11 yrs)


[ Children )

This event has passed.

Create your very own character

Think about your favourite storybook or comic character and have a go at creating your own. First we’ll draw our ideas on paper and then transform our character sketches into a final design which we will then transfer onto a foam board printing block. We can then print our character onto hand drawn scenes we’ve created using a variety of materials.

Materials:  We will provide materials.

The workshop is run by Chichester-based illustrator Diane Dunning. Diane has a background in Collagraphy, digital illustration and mixed-media design and commercial experience working in digital design, education and art within the community.

Diane’s Illustration is often inspired by the characteristics, nuances and personality of animals together with the wider beauty of nature. Her work is quirky, playful and light and she uses her Instagram page as a key central platform that allows her to connect with the wider creative world and receive feedback and inspiration from creators and art lovers across the globe.
