Creative Soup sessions are about storytelling, solving problems, art, FOOD, fun, inspiration, collaboration and GROWTH. They offer the chance to dig out that story (or stories) you've been thinking about, dreaming of and WISHING you knew how to start the process to publishing, or self publishing - or just making something! Gather with like-minded people as each person creates their own project, with support, encouragement and direction (when needed), in a super creative (and delicious) atmosphere.

All illustration, animation and writing questions are welcome - some things we can cover are:

  • How can I use my ipad to make art?

  • What are the steps to illustrating a book?

  • How do I find a publisher?

  • What does it take to self-publish (and how?)

  • Storyboarding and planning your book

  • showing - not telling in your illustration

  • character design

  • world building

  • animation basics

  • stop motion animation

  • 2d animation on the ipad

  • Comic book/graphic novels

And anything else you might want help with - I will try!

Creative Soup is open to anyone 14+ for drop-in - if you are younger than this - please have a guardian contact me prior to coming to make sure I can accomodate! Participants under 16 will require guardians to fill in a form at the beginning of first session they attend.
