Digital Comics Club: Back in Action!

Now that the schools are going back, we’re switching up our Digital Comics Club scheduling! Going forward, comics prompts will be posted every Tuesday afternoon. Let’s get started with our first prompt of the term.

You’re going back to school!
What are you looking forward to? What are your worries?

Activity-14---Back-to-School

Make a comic about how you feel.

 

Whatever you may feel about going back to school during a global pandemic, know that your feelings are valid, and you are not alone.

Drawn From Experience: Moving From Primary School to Secondary School

Dundee Comics Creative Space has been hard at work on a new book! Drawn From Experience is a comic for young people who are transitioning from primary to secondary school, inspired by the experiences of S1s at Harris Academy.

The transition this year will be challenging in new and different ways, but we hope that this comic can help. Click here or on the image below to download!

This project was led by Fiona Stirling, Moira Foster, and Elaine Hallyburton, and the book was edited by Rebecca Horner, Fiona Stirling, and Hailey Austin. The brilliant artists that brought these stories to life are Olivia Hicks, Catriona Laird, Ashling Larkin, Norrie Millar, Katie Quinn, and Millie Strachan!

Digital Comics Club: Week 15

It’s the last week of the school term in Dundee, so after our Thursday prompt, Digital Comics Club will be taking a break for the holidays!

This has been a really challenging time for everyone. We’re not yet in a position to be able to say when in-person clubs will resume, but Digital Comics Club will return when the schools go back in August! If you’ve missed any of our activities over the past three months, you can find them all on our Digital Comics Club page.

And so, we finish up our Tuesday series with some final comics tips:
