Laneway Learning and artist Emilie Walsh have partnered to run Glow Comics Trails: an art trail by Melbourne comics artists featuring glow-in-the-dark easter eggs for you to find!
As part of the event, Laneway Learning is offering the selected artists an opportunity to run a beginner workshop with us! A special opportunity to meet Melbourne comics artists and have them share their creative journey with you!
Comic Journaling with Sofia
Using simple prompts Sofia will warm up our pen for some simple forms of comic journalling. You will learn how to use every-day moments to make relatable, reflexive and/or humourous comics.
Using games and prompts you will be guided into the world of comic journalling, and how they can be used as a reflective practice.
No experience necessary, just come and have a great time! All materials provided.
