Comic Book Heroes: June 22-26; 9:30-3:00
Use your imagination and inspiration from your favorite comic stars to create your own unique heroes and villains in a collection of drawings while learning new illustration techniques. Produce a fully developed mini comic book using traditional hand-drawn comic techniques. Character design, storyline concepts, background creation, and grid structure will all be practiced in this workshop. Making comics combines creative thinking, writing and illustration skills while telling stories with a visual narrative. The class will also receive a visit from a local professional comic illustrator. You’ll also create stickers, copies of your books and buttons; perfect to sell during our Creative Kids Artist Market at the end of summer!
