Its been all go at Cartoon and Comic Arts
So Many apologies for how little has been posted since September and the start of the academic year. This year we saw 38 new additional Cartoon & Comics Art Students. Since then we've had an action packed 5 weeks start to the year and here is a few high lights from week One.
above is the new first year students who all turned up in September. The class was as ever bigger and better than previous years
One of the projects we set the students in the first week is to do a self portrait, this is basically to get them to introduce themselves in the best and easiest way possibly, through their drawings. By doing this the rest of eh cohort understands the individual and what they like and also realise what their drawing style is like.
Its a great way for lecturers to introduce themselves to the class and also for the class to introduce themselves to one another.
There are also several events happening during welcome week which seem to attract students on the CACA award. Such as the strange animals unit.
We also take the students to do a pub quiz at a local establishment The Glebe.
This year we did something different as we invited other levels to join in to take part in eh quiz and become the level 4 mentors. It's always nice when you are walking around the university if you see a friendly smiling face from other students on the award.
A view of the lads in the centre with Gareth Cowlin reading his presentation off his mobile phone... and saving the environment.... apparently!
Tony and Paul from the Level 6 pass on their expert knowledge of comics to the level 4 students
Kale and the Level 4s helping of hindering them?
Becci added a bit of Manga Knowledge to the quiz and probably a bit of professionalism.
Lawrence looking unsure about the Manga questions, good job the first years are there to help him out!
Mark Garner does his best impression of Bruce Forsythe ... Good Game Good Game!
Winners and losers and all friends
Higher than a four or Lower?
