Canterbury-Bankstown is the place to be for comic, illustration and art lovers, with a number of exciting events and workshops scheduled in coming weeks.

There are two FREE Comic Con(versations) events fast approaching at the Library and Knowledge Centres:

  • Wednesday 18 July (11am-12.30pm) - Chester Hill Library and Knowledge Centre hosts a ‘draw-off’ between American-style artist, Marcelo Baez, and Manga-style artist, Matthew Lin; and
  • Saturday 21 July (11.30am-2.30pm) - Campsie Library and Knowledge Centre hosts artists Mathew Lin, Han Nguyen and Meri Amber for drawing workshops and discussion.

Canterbury-Bankstown also hosted The Ledger Awards for the first time earlier this month, which acknowledged excellence in Australian comic art and publishing. Comic author and Ledger Committee Member, Gary Chaloner, said it was inspiring to see so many women on the shortlist this year.

"Having the Ledger Awards, as well as the Comic Con(versations) workshops, in Canterbury-Bankstown really raises the profile of comics," Mr Chaloner said.

"Creativity needs support and exposure, so all budding artists can develop. From the high school student, producing intimate diary comics, through to the big name writers and artists that work tirelessly to meet deadlines – the artist’s work needs to be valued and supported."

Mayor Khal Asfour said scheduling these events and programs is part of Council’s commitment to arts and culture.

"This is about meeting the aspirations of the community for our city over the next 10 years, which residents recently shared and we have captured in our CBCity 2028 plan," Mayor Asfour said.

"More than 10,000 residents told us they want to see more community and cultural programs, and celebrations, including creative art. We’re working hard to improve this in the short-term, so our residents are able to enjoy art sooner."

With Term 3 art classes set to kick-off on Monday 30 July at Bankstown Arts Centre, there are many more creative programs to participate in. These include:

  • Mini art club - interactive classes for parents and children, aged 2-5 years, on colours, textures and shapes (Mondays 10-11am);
  • Experimental drawing - for 5-8 years (Mondays 4-6pm);
  • Creative kids club – children, aged 9-12 years, create colourful artwork using a range of media (Mondays 4.30-6.30pm);
  • Photography classes – 16 years and over (Thursdays 10am-noon); and
  • Expressive art – children, 6-10 years, explore printmaking, design, sculpture and collage (Fridays 4-6pm).
