Update 03/03/22: These workshops have unfortunately been cancelled, as we were unable to find enough teenagers from the University’s catchment area. Coco will be running a workshop during Graphic Brighton itself, details TBC. In advance of Graphic Brighton 2022, which will be on the topic of comics by and for young people, the University of Brighton will be running four FREE ‘Saturday Clubs’ on March 12th, 19th, 26th and April 2nd 2022 from 10am to 2pm with a break for lunch, run by a team of lecturers and creators who have taught and made comics themselves, including young Brighton graphic novelist Coco Kirkland (Project Immortality).
If you’re a 13 to 16-year-old living in the Brighton area and would like to learning about making comics, this course might be ideal for you! With sessions on creating characters, planning stories, and how to lay out a comic book page, these workshops are a brilliant way of find out more about how comics are made, with the intent of creating your own short comic, which will then be published in an anthology and exhibited on campus.
For more info about the comics Saturday Clubs, and to book a place, please email outreach [at] brighton.ac.uk before Friday 25th February!
