May 2019, Drunk Animal Creative Studio and our Creative Director, Calvin Innes took part in Viking FMs Cash For Kids Superhero Day. Calvin visited the Viking FM studio to work with a small group of children and show them how to draw superheroes.
The drawing session was and extension of the ongoing work Calvin and Drunk Animal do to encourage children to be creative and to express themselves through art. The ultimate aim being to help their confidence and their mental well being through positive reinforcement, encouragement and allowing the freedom to be creative in a relaxed and fun environment.
