Draw a Laugh: A Comics Workshop with Gwee Li Sui

WORKSHOP

 

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.
