About the Programme

Tired of superheroes comic and superpowers to save the day? Learn to create your own slice-of-life comic zine. For this session, think about a day in your life--it can be the food you eat, a train journey, or even your routine walks home. Artist James Tan will show you how you can create a comic out of these moments, infused with your personal observations and thoughts.

You will be guided through the fundamentals of comic-making in this session and learn how you can be creative and make your own comic(s) from slice-of-life moments.
