This is a course for beginners through to the more experienced, and is suitable for all ages and abilities. There is so much similarity and cross-over between cartoons, comics and caricatures that they go well together in the one course. Whether you want to learn about one of these or all of them, then this is the course for you to advance your passion, understanding and techniques of the art. There will be talks, examples, and demonstrations both for the group and for one-on-one help with each person's particular interests and needs. 

Over the 8 weeks you will learn the traditional media, styles and techniques and how to develop your own style, developing and editing your ideas and stories, designing and constructing characters and styles and composition and storytelling.

Wellington artist Ross Payne has been a professional in the industry for 30 years, and wants to pass his knowledge onto those who are keen to learn.
