Drawing Comics

February 22 @ 12:00 am - March 29 @ 12:00 am

The course will visit a number of approaches of the comic form, from spontaneous drawing exercises inspired by Lynda Barry to the techniques and storytelling language of manga. Themes we will explore: letting your characters emerge, using ordinary and professional materials, drawing the reader in, finding stories and making a simple zine. This 6-week drawing adventure is open to all. No previous experience is necessary. Be ready to have fun, be inspired and surprise yourself with the products of your imagination! Facilitated by Fiona Dowling, comic artist, painter and storyteller based in Mayo. Fiona started her comic journey in 2015 by drawing a daily comic while volunteering on organic farms, this daily practice culminated in an online daily diary project through 2019. Fiona is currently working on "Excuse my French", an autobiographical graphic novel. She has read from and exhibited her work-in-progress zines at the Alliance Française Comics Festival in 2022 and will feature in the 2023 edition of the Festival. Workshops will run weekly: 22nd Feb - 29th March 2023 Please note this workshop is designed for adults 18+
