I attended the Connect and Participate (CAP) expo yesterday at Old Bus Depot Markets and it was a very busy and interactive day. Lots of community groups and services attended and was a great day for all involved.
I ran some small cartooning workshops at my stall and had the opportunity to present on the main stage towards the end of the day – good promotion for Funnyworks Oz and opportunity to explain nature of my business and give a cartooning demo.
A frenetic day and brain full at the end of it – great fun!
There’s still time to register for the remainder of term 1 or for term 2 cartooning and caricaturing workshops! Just contact Belconnen Art Centre or email me for enquiries.
Just completed 2 weekends of live caricaturing at Old Parliament House as part of the Enlighten Festival – a great experience and lots of people wanting to be caricatured! Myself and another cartoonist really worked over 4 four hour periods and around 400 people were caricatured………whew (including a group of 13)! Lots of fun and a great place for a gig like this. Very lucky to also have the opportunity to provide cartooning workshops there also as part of the Behind the Lines exhibition. More program news soon……….
The “Enlighten Festival” is here again at the parliamentary triangle and Funnyworks Oz is part of it through live caricaturing from 6 – 9pm at the Museum Of Australian Democracy (MOAD) in Old Parliament House on Friday and Saturday nights! Come along and have your pic drawn – it’ll only take about 5 minutes and you have a free keepsake to frame. Also a great occasion with lots of fantastic sights and activities!
Funnyworks Oz also have exciting new workshop programs including courses at Belconnen Arts Centre on Thursdays from 6 – 7.30pm! Lots of interactive sessions where techniques and tricks of the trade are shown, including character creation and caricaturing.
More to come soon!
