"It has been proven time and time again in countless studies that students who actively participate in arts education are twice as likely to read for pleasure, have strengthened problem-solving and critical thinking skills, are four times more likely to be recognised for academic achievement, four times likely to participate in a math and science fair."

Have you ever thought about sketching when you pick up a comic book? Sounds totally unrelated? Think again! The proportions, realistic depth that transport us right to the centre of the story, stylised shading… Now you see it?
Join us in this epic course to learn about sketching comics! Inspired by Hergé and his classics- The Adventures of Tintin. You won't just conquer the moon. You'll conquer the pencils and new audience with the new projects you'll work on throughout this workshop.
Open to all artists aged 9-16. You will work through 5 to 7 projects depending on your age, current level of skills and attendance. Through this once a week 80 minutes long class, you will learn with our experienced artist tutors about spatial thinking, perspectives, proportions, and how to use them in your comics to bring life and joy out of the story.
Parents' company is not needed for artists at this level. All course content is included for students enrolled in this course. Please bring your own painting set. If you are new, please order your starter pack here at ajstudio.store
We create fresh new lessons weekly, images here are for inspirations and indications only, of the level and content of this course.

Each session is uniquely developed for the individual student to achieve and progress. You will need a sketchbook and a sketching pencil set for class and homework use.

Frequently asked questions
1 What happens if I miss a class?
If you feel sick, please stay home and apply a catch-up lesson at a later time. Or, if you feel well enough, please join your session online via our app or this website. Regrettably, we can only provide catch-up lessons within your enrolled term based on availability. Any unused credit cannot be carried over to the following term.
2 What's your refund policy in a nutshell?
For the fairness of the other students, for our clever tutors who provide the lessons that you love, the studio cannot offer a refund if you change your mind. Our in-studio workshops are strictly made up of the limited number of students enrolled before the start of each school term and have the appropriate resources allocated to accommodate the optimal learning experience for all students in the course. To ensure the staff and supplies can be maintained for the course, payment for their use cannot be refunded so that the remaining students may continue the learning and development they paid for. In the event of Covid-19 restrictions, workshops will resume online. No refund can be issued if you decide not to participate in online sessions.
3 What do I need to bring to class?
If you are joining the workshop in person, just bring your lovely self! Please bring your own art pack for Clever Canvas™, Sketchbook Challenge™ and Super Matisse™ lessons. If you are joining online, great! Ensure your device is fully charged, and check with your tutor beforehand about what supplies you may need to prepare.
4 Which class should I join?
Choosing a class that suits your age group would be a great way to start. Your tutor will advise you if moving up or down a level may be more beneficial for your child. Check out the 'Find My Workshop' page for more details.
