Creepy House workshops at Yarm and Stockton Central Libraries.

I just did two great workshops with really creative children at the Stockton Central and Yarm libraries. As so often before I really enjoyed the experience and I have a feeling that the children did too. If you follow this link to the TeesToons Facebook page, you will find two albums with picture that the children drew of me (ingi) as a Creepy Critter – Imagine that! :)

Many thanks for a great time!

My muscles ache!

Great day today with Zubaidah of Vivid Dance as we jointly did our Dancing & Drawing workshop, Monsters In Motion, at Priory Woods School in Middlesbrough.

The dancing part was great fun for me, but now I’m suffering the consequences with aching muscles all over :-)

Looking forward to next week’s session!

Monsters In Motion at Priory Woods with Vivid Dance

This week I’ll be Monstering about with Vivid Dance as we deliver the first of 6 Monsters in Motion sessions at Priory Woods in Middlesbrough.

Before the school holidays we met up with the pupils and got to know them – and they, us – and I can safely say that it’s bound be loads of fun!

GRRRÓRRR ÆRR FUÐF RÚÚFFF ARRR!*

*In plain English: “I’m looking forward to monster about at Priory Woods School!”

Last day at Hemlington Hall Primary

I just couldn’t have asked for more creativity from the children and their parents/grandparents. I manged to get everyone drawing comics and even spotted a hidden talent in one of the dads :-) I had so much fun and I can safely say that the kids did too.
I really enjoyed my time at the school and now I’m looking forward to see the comics that the children will produce in their Course on Japanese culture.
You all did extremely well!

Today I (ingi) taught the creative children at Hemlington Hall Primary how to make comics in Manga style. This was my third session of 4.
Next week the children will bring a parent in and together we will all make comics. If last year’s session is anything to go by we’ll have great fun!

This is the third year I deliver my How To Draw Manga at Hemlington Hall Primary.

Looking forward to get all the parents making comics next week! :-)
