Comic Artist Visits St Stephens

4th November 2019

With our whole school Art focus on Drawing this term we were delighted today to welcome Kev F Sutherland - a practicing and renowned comic artist who has worked on many comics including Marvel and Beano!Thanks to parent contributions and our wonderful PTFA St Stephens were able to provide this wonderful enrichment opportunity. The morning started with the whole school being shown some art skills and techniques in assembly and then  he went on to present a cartoon masterclass to Year 5 and year 4.  Everyone thoroughly enjoyed his session and his humour!  The children learnt new drawing skills and  made a class comic between them which had short cartoons by all the children in. Kev F also drew a caricature of each child for them to take home ,this is also in the comic. Copies of the comics can be enjoyed in our school entrance.
