Writing & Drawing Comic Books

Get ready to run faster and jump higher, one frame at a time! Together we’re taking your stories and transforming them into comics. You’ll take an ordinary day (or the wildest story you can imagine) and use comic book language, illustration, and frames to share with everyone the next super-adventure. You don’t need to be an artist to join us – just bring your best ideas. You’ll learn all the steps to comics illustration and development, including pin-ups, single-frame and multi-frame pages, using any pencils, pens, paints and other art materials.

Comics may be a quick read, but not as quick as this workshop is filling up – register now to save your space!

Parents, please be sure to pack lunch and a water bottle for your child each day!

*Please note, masks will be required for this class. Guardians will be required to fill out additional paperwork related to COVID-19 protocols before their student can attend class. Thank you!
