CARTOONING WORKSHOP
In this workshop, students (even those who believe they have limited artistic skills) are shown how to develop characters using basic shapes and how to portray movement, emotions and funny situations.

THE “ANYONE CAN DRAW” WORKSHOP
This workshop takes students in a humorous and fast-paced way through some basic techniques that anyone can master and shows how to convey complex emotions and ideas through simple drawings.

MURALS
Murals, whether permanent or temporary, provide an enriching experience for the whole school community. They give students a sense of ownership of their school, can be used as a visual representation of curriculum themes and present a positive image to the surrounding community. Successful murals need careful planning and a preliminary meeting with staff is required before the painting starts.
