Film & Visual Art

Suitable for Primary 4-7

Why do superheroes fascinate us? From the heroes of Marvel Comics like the X-Men and Spiderman to the DC Comics heroes like Batman, Superman and Daredevil. What makes a hero today? Aimed at  young people in primary 4-7, this fun workshop aims to get children thinking about the idea of service to one another in society, the difference between justice and revenge, self-control and the use of power, and the concept of vocation. It will be illustrated with clips and photographs from the movies. We will end with asking the young people to create and draw their own superhero.
