Storytelling Through Illustration

This workshop is about removing the fear of putting mark on paper, extending a journaling practice, and opening the door to creativity. No experience necessary!

Over the course of the three-week workshop, professional illustrator Fruzsi will give insights into working in the industry and take participants through watercolour techniques and some wonderful mind-opening exercises to encourage thinking outside the square. In addition to watercolour techniques, the use of POSCA pens, COPIC markers and ink will also be explored. The aim is for these skills to extend well beyond the workshops, with the aid of the take-home kit which includes your very own Moleskine journal and fine-line pen.

This workshop is perfect for budding illustrators, professional artists looking to extend their journaling practice, uni students, working professionals, and even self-proclaimed ‘non creatives’. The techniques explored especially lend themselves to assisting in healing and working through mental health barriers, and finding a creative outlet to assist with the strain of every-day stresses.

The workshop fee covers three 1.5 hour sessions of tuition, all professional quality materials including brushes, watercolour paints, pens and tools in addition to some fun surprise materials and a bonus a take-home kit.
