Tutor – Emma Burleigh
Saturday 22 October, 10.30am - 4.30pm and Sunday 23 October, 10.30am - 3.30pm
This class will be taking place in person at The RWA Drawing School Studio at the Royal West of England Academy. If government restrictions prevent this, due to Covid, this course will take place on Zoom.
From jewel like medieval manuscripts to present day graphic novels, word and image can complement each other in beautiful and imaginative ways. Join award winning 'graphic novelist in progress' and comics artist Emma Burleigh to explore the interplay of word and image, exploring narrative, and teasing out your own personal stories. Draw on myth, folk tale, poems and life experience for inspiration. By the end of the weekend you will have completed your own graphic short story in inks, paints, pencils or another media of your choice.
Suitable for all abilities. Basic materials provided, although we recommend bringing your own watercolour brushes if you have them. Please wear clothes suitable for a studio environment and a bag to take your work home with you.
This class will be taking place in person at The RWA Drawing School Studio at the Royal West of England Academy, BS8 1PX.
