Comic Book Workshop with Maeve Clancy
During Good Relations Week, the Nerve Centre will launch its latest comic book ‘Partition — A Journey Through The Archives’ as part of its Creative Centenaries project. This story uses archive collections from institutions across the island of Ireland as a means of exploring our past and showing its complexity. It is part of a series of resources that highlight the roles of real people and stories from throughout the 1912 – 1922 period.
On Saturday 25th Sept, we will be hosting an online comic book workshop with the artist behind the Partition comic for 8-15 year olds — Maeve Clancy.
During the workshop participants will learn how to design themselves as a character and create a comic based on their own story.
Running order of the workshop:
- Get an introduction to ‘Partition — A Journey Through The Archives’ developed by the Nerve Centre’s Creative Centenaries project with artwork by Maeve.
- Learn new skills in character design and how to use comic strip techniques including panels, speech bubbles, descriptive text, diagram and image.
- Explore other docu-comics for inspiration such as those by Joe Sacco, Guy Delisle, Alison Bechdel, Riad Sattouf and Marianne Satrapi.
- Learn new skills in making thumbnails to tell your character’s story.
