Overview
It’s another average day in Wanchai until…. a giant food attacks! But instead of Godzilla, it’s an over-sized snack that’s wreaking havoc. In this unique collaboration with Choco L'ART Studio in Wan Chai, students will work with both an ECP writing teacher and a Choco L'ART art teacher to create an epic storyline for their comic and learn to illustrate their ideas. Watch out, there’s a giant cha siu bao climbing up the side of IFC! Who will save the day?
