Neill Cameron is a cartoonist and writer, and creator of the award-winning Mega Robo Bros and How to Make Awesome Comics. He is also the author/illustrator of the popular middle-grade novels Freddy vs School, Freddy and the New Kid and Freddy the Superstar. Since 2011, Neill's work has appeared in the weekly children's comic The Phoenix(this will open in a new window). Neill is also currently artist in residence at The Story Museum in Oxford(this will open in a new window), where he has contributed several large-scale comic strip installations and is involved in comics-based education and activities.
In this 90 minute workshop, Neill will show participants how to generate (awesome) ideas for comics, and then how to turn those ideas into a comic story! The aim is to use comics to help children feel empowered as writers, giving them confidence to create their own characters and stories.
You will need a way to display PowerPoint slides stored on a USB, a flipchart and pens for Neill, and blank paper and pencils for participants.
