Silent Army Micro Press

Calling all 12-25 aged illustrators: Yarra Youth Services announces comic book illustration and publication program for young people led by renowed comic artist Michael Fikaris.

Fikaris will demonstrate a variety of drawing techniques to help young artists develop their own illustrative style. As the year progresses, he will build on these workshops by showing young people book-binding techniques, so that they can produce their own publication, and provide guidance about preparing for an exhibition.  The program will include a number of excursions to studios and galleries that specialise in comic art and printing. All materials, snacks, pick-ups from school and drop offs in the Yarra municipality are included in this free program.
