YOUNGSTERS are enjoying some comic capers at a superheroes art class.
Rig Arts run the sessions from their studio at the old Tobacco Warehouse in Haig Street.
They’ve proved so popular that Rig Arts have secured funding to continue the classes.
Laura Grech, who is project manager, said: “The class has been running for a few years and we were delighted to get funding to continue.
“Brian Rankin, who is a comic book illustrator, is teaching them how to develop their own characters and stories every week using storyboards.
“They are learning different skills of drawing and storytelling to create their own comic.”
The sessions are open to children aged between eight and 16 or older who are on the autistic spectrum.
Laura says they have received positive feedback from young people and parents.
She said: “Parents have told us that the classes have been great for their kids and allow them to express themselves.
“They’ve maybe tried other activities but have not been interested in those things, but they are really excited about coming to the comic book classes.
“They get a chance to make new friends and have a chat.
“It’s a social thing and a chance to met people who like the same things.”
The classes run on Fridays between 3.30 and 5.30pm and 1 and 3pm on Saturdays.
