Family Day Weekend Activities at OSFM

Join us for some family-friendly fun this Family Day weekend

Comic and Cartoon Workshop as a Writing Strategy!

New to the Old Strathcona Farmer’s Market, there are two workshops every Saturday. Located in an ideal environment for creative storytelling and comics creation!

Two-hour classes with loads of drawing, writing and cartooning applications that help students create their own characters and storylines

  • Class 1: 10 AM – 12 PM
  • Class 2: 1 PM – 3 PM
  • Where: The Draw Funny classroom, located inside the market on the second-floor mezzanine space.

A fast-paced and fun comic-creating session for kids 7+ that will crush writer’s block, through collaboration, humour and tackling deadlines. Enhanced with a few creative drawing games with a focus on the silly, the ridiculous and the profound! I keep the class sizes small (10 students maximum) to ensure individual attention.
