Service Description

*6 classes over the course of 7 weeks: Saturdays, May 4 - June 15, 2:00pm - 4:00pm (No class on May 25) Ages 14+ Comics and graphic novels are more popular than ever, with Dog Man being a national bestseller and most every teen reading manga or watching anime. In this class, you’ll build your storytelling vocabulary through text and image, and discover the traditional methods of making your own comics. The skills you'll practice can not only be applied to comics, but can help you better improve your storytelling through drawing, calligraphy, mixed media projects, and writing. This class will primarily focus on the disciplines of writing, penciling, inking, lettering, and self-publishing, using the traditional comics tools of pen and ink. Through this process, you’ll create your own characters and create your own stories, starting with the imagery of simple stick figures, so if you can draw a stick figure you can take this class! Experienced writer, cartoonist, and educator, Vannotes, will be your guide! (You can check out more of their work here: https://www.vannotesbooks.com/ ) Please bring the following with you: - Pencil (Mechanical, HB Lead Preferred) - Eraser (Black Preferred) - Ames Lettering Guide - T-Square - Pentel Brushpen - Micron Pen Pack (Any technical ink pen will do) - 9x12 Bristol Pad - 11 x 17 Bristol Pad Optional: - Layered clothing, as the temperatures may fluctuate in our building - Water/beverage with lid Scholarships for this and all of our other classes are available for those who otherwise would not be able to attend art classes, thanks to generous donations to our Art Start Fund.
