Package guided tour + workshop
We propose this package for schools situated in Brussels who wish to combine a museum visit with a creative workshop. After a theoretical approach during the museum tour, a professional comic strip artist will come and give an initiation workshop, which can take place at your school (in the Brussels Capital Region only) or in our classroom in the museum (one class at a time).
During a workshop which may last 2 to 3 hours, our comic strip artist 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 and children 8-14 years of age, 3rd class of primary school up to 6th year of secondary school.
If you prefer to organize the workshop in your school, the comic artist will bring worksheets with exercises; the school should provide plain copy paper, pencils, erasers and a chalkboard or whiteboard.
For workshops in our museum, all material is provided.
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.
Reservations need to be made at least two weeks in advance, by phone, email or online.
