A workshop with Beano artits & Julius Zebra creator, Gary Northfield!
This creative master class starts with a theatrical ice breaking performance from Gary, before the first easy warm up challenge is introduced – draw Julius Zebra!
With a captivated and focused audience, Gary sets a series of mini writing tasks, all timed, and all featuring creative and grammatical targets. The fast pace and themed targets create an enthusiastic momentum amongst eager and inspired pupils.
The writing tasks are broken up with picture drawing activities where pupils enjoy learning professional cartoonist techniques as well as seeing how much impact and context can be achieved when illustrations are accompanied by prose.
Gary’s energised presence retains the pupils’ focus throughout which always sees him fired a barrage of questions about illustrating and creative writing, all of which he’s always happy to answer in the most inspirational of ways.
Engage your school’s young budding cartoonists and writers with this entertaining and highly informative literacy learning experience.

Cancellation / Return / Exchange Policy
Due to the nature of pre-ordered book stock for school visits, often before the official publication date, and the fact that all copies will be personally signed (ie marked) by the Author, Book Supplier partners are usually unable to accept returns or exchanges.
All stock is brand new and from the wholesale agent which is later supplied & checked for quality/damage by a professional bookseller up until the point of signing.
Any cancelled customer orders must be requested within 10 working days of the date of the School Visit to qualify, for the reasons outlined above.
