Spend 2 jam-packed, fun-filled days learning to plan, draft, write, draw, edit and "publish" a comic or illustrated short story.   

This session is for ages 8 to 11.  (we have another one for ages 12+)

Most kids are natural story tellers so tapping into this when they are young can spark a lifetime of creative thinking! 

By the end of the 2 day session your child will have developed a full story board/outline, characters, story ideas, some comic strips and possibly more depending on how motivated they are. 

We'll explore many mediums - including digital, traditional and a variety of art tools.   

Learn how to get designs/ideas out of our head and onto the page and how to create characters and stories that engage others.  Your kiddos will create their own unique characters!  This isn't about simply recreating or copying a favorite character - it's taking characteristics of characters we know, looking at what makes them special and developing something unique and personal based on those preferences. 

If your child loves anime and butterflies - they might create an anime style creature with butterfly wings etc.  We'll do activities that spark creativity: mind mapping, AI prompts, games, and collaboration activities to get the creative juices flowing. 

After that they'll be given all the tools and encouragement they need to create some comic panels and present them at the end of day 2 (if they want to, we don't force that) but we thought it might be fun to give them the option of posting a little gallery of their work!  If your child chooses to participate you'll be able to come see the gallery at the end of the day (3 to 3:30) on the final day.  

This program includes all materials, lessons and one daily snack/drink.  Sack lunches and a water bottle are required each day.  Discount codes do not apply for 2 day programs.  Thanks!
