About this event

Suitable for 9yrs + (This workshop is aimed at kids but all ages are welcome.)

This is a beginner level workshop aimed at breaking down what goes into creating a character. We will be looking at anatomy, character expressions, clothes and accessories that make the character feel unique and stand out!

The workshop will consist of a PowerPoint break down of the stages to building a character, encouraging participants to draw and get creative along the way with set tasks at each stage!

By the end of the session participants will know what to think about when creating a character and be able to apply the process to their own creative projects. They will also have a character drawn ready to show friends and family.
