Draw a Laugh: A Comics Workshop with Gwee Li Sui



Everyone loves funny comics–and, if you cannot get enough, why not draw your own? Practice the basics with Gwee Li Sui, author of well-loved titles such as Who Wants to Buy a Book of Poems?, The Other Merlion and Friends, and Spiaking Singlish. Gwee will guide you on how to express humour, draw silly characters, create a style, and adapt to different formats. There may also be mystery guests showing up to share their wisdom! At least a talent in drawing stick figures is good enough for this fun-filled and surprising workshop.
