Year 11 Art workshop with Gareth Hopkins

Delighted to welcome Gareth Hopkins, a talented artist and illustrator who specialises in abstract comics, who kindly spent the day with our students helping them to develop abstract comic imagery.

Gareth has loved Marvel comics and Art from a young age and was intrigued by comic covers of X Men and X-Force. Gareth has developed a technique where he uses fine liners and creates black and white images and then adds in elements of colour to his work.

He worked with the group to produce an initial sketch which they then worked on using a style of intricate black line-work. These images were then produced into four separate pieces each showcasing different areas of the original sketch.  And the result speaks for itself!
