Join us for a storytelling workshop, where our main focus will be on the conceptualization, writing and drawing of a short-form, multi-page comic. Using the tools learned in class, students will work start-to-finish on a story of their own design, with the goal to create a three-page visually compelling narrative by the end of the workshop.
