Hi comic fans, Kev F here, writer and artist for The Beano, Marvel and many more (see website for details)
Most of my Comic Art Masterclasses, where I can teach anyone how to write and draw comics, are in schools, open only to the pupils, but occasionally they are open for the public to attend. Most sessions last a morning or afternoon, if you're really lucky they can last all day. By the end of each session you'll have learnt all about comics and will have produced a comic to take away, containing a strip by everyone in the group, plus a caricature by me. The following dates are open to the public (minimum age 7, some events may have a maximum age):
Sat 19 June 2010 = St Barbe Museum, Lymington Hants
Sat 3 July 2010 = St Barbe Museum, Lymington Hants
Sun 4 July 2010 - Jester Festival, Hampstead
