Creating a Graphic Novel (six week course run by Simone Lia) begins. 57 Arts, 57 Loampit Hill London SE13 7SZ.

This practical and informal course is for anyone who would like to explore their own creativity and create narratives with words and pictures. All backgrounds are welcome; the workshops are suitable for beginners who do not have formal art training.

Four sessions will be run on consecutive weeks with drawing workshops that help explore creativity and story telling through sequential art. The sessions will help prepare students to write their own graphic novel. There will be a two week break after the fourth session to allow each person time to work on a fuller story to share with the group.

The next course begins on the 16th January, Thursday evenings between 6-9pm and costs £150 or £120 for concessions.

Please bring any favourite drawing pens/pencils and eraser. Other materials and refreshments included.
