Menzies College

The Cartoon Academy

The Cartoon Academy Menzies Style


Do you fancy yourself as a creator?

Are your books filled with oodles of doodles? 

Or is your head full of character ideas?

Fancy yourself as a villain or a hero?

Do you feel like you could be the next cartooning wizz kid?

If so, this activity may be for you!

Join guest artist and character designer Bella Ranstead to develop a range of cartoon character designs. You will learn how to add expression and gesture to your characters to make them believable and unique and will design your very own comic. 

Will your characters take over Menzies College? Lets wait and see!


Planning And Preparation

In the lead up to this activity we will need to get together and discuss what it is we want to create. We will do some research on cartoons and even some practise sketches before taking on the MAD week itself. You will also have some time to plan and organize your ideas and have any questions you may have answered.
