Workshops drawing comics

Accompanying the comic drawing contest me and Edith-made-it gave a workshop at youth center De Valk in Amsterdam-Noord.

The workshop began with an exercise: to finish a little comic strip.

Each child draws a picture, passes it to the child next to him/ her and then to a third one, that finishes  the comic. Below some examples and some pictures of the intensive labour that was going on!
