Description

SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAM (Upper Primary, ages 7-12)

Monday 3 October 2016, 9.30am - 12 noon
$30 FAWWA/KSP/WAWU members; $40 non-members

Ever wondered how to create your own graphic novel? How do you get from idea to building and drawing your own story? James Foley can walk you through the creative process and give you tips on how to be the graphic novelist you’ve always dreamed of being.

James Foley’s junior fiction graphic novel Brobot follows Sally – the world’s foremost inventor under the age of twelve – who knows she can build a better brother than the messy, smelly version she has. Her invention is fantastic until the remote gets broken and Brobot careens out of control. Sally realizes that maybe there’s more to a brother than just his inconveniences.

The invention experience will allow kids to create and share their stories, expressing their ideas and thoughts in both words and images.

Morning tea included.

This event is proudly supported by the Department of Culture and the Arts and Fremantle City Library.
