OUR KID'S KOMICS™

This year we are running a Create A Comic with , OKK™ (Our Kid's Komics™) initiative where we invite kids from 7-18yrs to participate in creating a 1-2 page comic story told in 6 panels. They will get to make up their own characters in their own art style and draw up it for us to produce a black/white digital collection of their stories.

We will have a writer and a comic artist along with art students to help the kids tell their stories in their choice of style, American Comics, Manga, European, Cartoon or Comic Strips. 

We are looking to then later produce a print version of this collection that will be given free to the kids, and also available for purchase both in digital download and in print versions. 

12 noon to 4pm.
