Portffolio: artist-led masterclass for 14-18 yr olds

Make your own characters, stories and comic strips
Marc Jackson’s workshop will teach you everything you’ll need to know to make your own comic! Learn character design, storyboarding and narrative from an industry professional. Using these tools, you’ll come away with your very own comic strip, and an insight into the comic world. If you’ve got characters building up in a sketchbook, bring it along and give them a story.
