Learning The Art Of Cartoons and Caricatures

Learning The Art Of Cartoons and Caricatures

On June 8th to 12th, KIS Art Department hosted a team of young and energetic Illustrators and Designers from Asguardian, a specialised Art Training Centre in Kota Kinabalu. Workshops for our Early Years and Primary Students taught the students a range of skills for creating their own cartoon characters. For our Secondary students the visiting Illustrators and Designers guiding them through the process of converting a photo into a caricature, with some very creative and amusing results. The response to the workshops was overwhelmingly positive, with all students participating with bundles of enthusiasm and learning many new skills along the way. A group of parents and staff were also invited to join in the activities, with a special workshop held for them at the end of the week, where a lot of fun was had by all. Take some time to view a selection of photos from the week at our Flickr page and see the results of the workshops for yourself!
