Since the early scribblings of ancient cave people, pictures have been used to tell a story, capture a moment, and convey a message. Though sometimes frowned upon as frivolous, Comic books are a proud part of the long tradition of graphica. Comics demand readers to use critical thinking and visual literacy skills to bring a seemingly fragmented tale into life.Return to event list.
During our Comic Book Making camp, we will use various comic artists and authors as mentors to find, write, and create our own works of comic wonder. Through a crash course in understanding graphica, writing prompts, storyboards, artwork, editing, and publication, participants will create their own image-driven stories and work towards discovering their voices as they explore the wonderful world of comics.
