Package guided tour + workshop

For schools situated in Brussels who wish to combine a museum visit with a creative workshop we propose a package, including a guided tour of the museum and a creative workshop. After a theoretical approach during the museum tour, a professional comic strip artist will come and give an initiation workshop at your school.

During a workshop which may last 2 to 3 hours, depending on the available timeslot in your school’s schedule, our cartoonist will give pupils a practical insight in his work. He will help each of them to develop a character, to design a story lay-out and storyboard for one page of artwork, and to fully understand and exploit the typical comic strip codes. The workshop’s objective is twofold: providing insight in the craftsmanship of comic artists, and offering an opportunity to create a basic one page comic.   

The package is available only for schools in the Brussels Capital Region (8-14 years of age, 3rd class of primary school up to 2nd year of secondary school) in French, Dutch and English. The comic artist will bring worksheets with exercises; the school should provide plain copy paper, pencils, erasers and a chalkboard or whiteboard. A teacher should be present throughout the workshop to supervise the pupils’ work. The museum tour and the workshop can be scheduled on the same day or on separate dates.   

To reserve a package guided tour + workshop, please contact the education service.

Reservations need to be made at least two weeks in advance, by phone, email or online.
