QES Special News 2017-18

Thanks to the Talbots!

By Miss Sosnowsky, QES Library

Thanks to the Lakes International Comic Art Festival, multi-award winning comics creators Bryan and Mary Talbot spoke to Year 8 and Year 9 students on Monday 16th October.

A highly sophisticated and academic session, Bryan talked through slides demonstrating the myriad ways a skilled comics creator can manipulate the reader to think and feel important aspects of a narrative through this visual medium.

Later in the year pupils will be asked to draw (pardon the pun!) upon this lecture to create their own comic strip or story for the cross-curricular Traces of the Great War project.

We look forward to seeing the results!
