Program Dates: June 21 - 27, 2020
Grades: Rising 8th - Rising 12th


Young creators are invited to a comic creation workshop, where we will tell stories through pictures. Students will learn about the rich history of the medium that spans centuries and countless genres. They will practice drawing, writing, and lettering skills. Students will learn compositional tools including choosing "camera" angles, controlling pacing, when to make storytelling clear, and when to make your readers work for the payoff.
