Comic Workshops with St Albans Primary School

 On the 7th of May Shaun Tan and I ran the second set of comic-drawing workshops with year 6 students from St Albans Primary School. The workshops were held in the theaterette at the Immigration Museum and students participated in a live reading of Shaun Tan’s story “Eric” and discussed themes of belonging, difference and identity.

Students then participated in both a comic discovery trail through the Museum and a cultural walk along Sandridge Bridge followed by comic-drawing workshops, where they drew their own stories.
