Cartooning for Beginners
Time & Location
About the Event
Enrol via Sydney Community College:
From the single panel editorial cartoons of the newspapers to the walls of city streets, cartoons are everywhere!
If you struggle with stick-people and haven’t picked up a pencil since your school days, never fear- this class is not about virtuoso drawing skills. Throughout the course we will demystify drawing with the aim of creating simplified & iconic cartoons, like the classics.
It’s also about understanding how to tell stories with static images – how to create comedic pacing, dramatic tension and a clear flow for the reader, amongst other storytelling techniques.
This Cartooning for Beginners Class will be based around your own ideas – your own stories, jokes, characters and style. You will start with an idea and develop it over the 6 weeks by applying what you learn in class.
