Pete McKee's Cartoon Workshop for Beginners


Join Pete McKee, one of Sheffield's best-loved artists, as he hosts online cartoon workshop lessons.

The lessons will be posted each Wednesday at midday, starting on 25th March.

Anyone can take part – whether you've got kids at home or just want something creative to help break up the day.

All you’ll need is a few pieces of paper, or whatever’s lying around – card, scrap paper etc – and some pencils or pens.

Keep an eye on Pete's Youtube channel for the lessons.
