Character drawing with Luan Barber Norton

23 July 2021

Suitable for all ages.

We learned to draw funny, silly characters in this workshop with illustrator Luan Barber Norton on Bluecoat Platform.

1 - 4pm on Thu 22 and Fri 23 July

Children came out of the sessions more confident with character designing and making silly and fun drawings. They got to try a range of activities to choose from so they felt comfortable.

This event was part of our summer family events programme which was chosen by children from Holy Cross School in Liverpool.

For four weeks throughout the summer holidays, families enjoyed FREE storytelling, music, comedy for kids, designed to engage children of all ages.

Meet Luan

Howdy! I'm Luan, a wholesome illustrator spreading love and good vibes wherever I go. My workshop sessions will always involve support and encouragement, I believe anyone can create art!

"I am so excited to learn new things! Whenever I do workshop sessions with children I always come out learning new things, whether it's art related or Minecraft knowledge."

Located in our front courtyard, this family-friendly outdoor sculpture was designed by children for children! Our after school arts club Out of the Blue worked with artists Simon & Tom Bloor to come up with this fun, interactive sculpture for the whole family to enjoy.

In Summer 2021, the platform became a stage for our entire family events programme!
