One of Comic Art Europe’s goal is to research the impact of comics on literacy throughout workshops opened to different communities.
The Lakes International Comic Art Festival (LICAF) are delighted that Abraham Moss Primary School, Year 3, will be the UK group. In the UK they will be exploring how comics impact upon children’s enjoyment of reading and their well-being.
The first stage of the programme involves finding out more about the children and their current attitudes and preferences in relation to reading and other activities. Parents/guardians are asked about their children and about what they do and don’t enjoy doing. This confidential information will be enable LICAF to measure progress over the 12 months of the programme.
The second stage is a series of creative whorkshops in which the children will learn all about comics (how to read them and create them).
The first workshop recently happened and it was a hit!
The third stage will involve LICAF writing a report and presenting it to key organizations in the fields of education, literacy and arts to enable more children and educators to benefit from all that comics have to offer.
The new deadline for applications is April 9th!
