MAKE a Comic Book
DATES: Wednesday July 17 and Wednesday July 31
 

There is a class limit of 10 participants.  Register NOW for this program at Community Pass.


The popularity of the Marvel Universe (The Avengers) and DC Universe (Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman) movies have introduced movie fans to the source materials: comic books that were created decades ago and are still entertaining fans today. You can learn how to make a high-quality and exciting comic book in this workshop. We will explore the components of a comic book story and its visual elements. Then we will each create a unique comic book featuring each of us as a superhero or in some other adventure. No artistic experience is necessary as the comics can be created not only with hand drawings but with action figures, LEGO figures, dolls, clipart, or photographs we take in class. Options for creation will include either working on paper pages or in an easy-to-use computer program in the MakerSpace. No experience is necessary and all materials are supplied. The workshop is open to all ages but an adult must accompany each child younger than 12.
