Are your kids intersted in manga, marvel comics, Calvin and Hobbs? This class teaches kids how to create their own characters and develop visual stories. By the end of the classes they will have a comic strip to calltheir very own! 

Wednesday May 5th
In this first week we will be exploring how to make a story. the best stories are simple and have clear beginning, middle and end. We will also practice a few different comic art styles such as Naruto, Garfield and Batman. 

Wednesday May 12th
In this class its all about character development. We will even be making little clay models of our main character to get a better idea of what they look like and what they may love to wear or accessories they carry. 

Wednesday May 19th
Now that we have decided on the appearance of our story and the characters  its time to put it to action. In this class we will be drawing out a rough draft of the story or comic strip. 

Wednesday May 26th
This is the final class where we will finish the comic, ink it and perfect it. 

These workshops will be taught by Jessica A. McVicker who has a bachelor's in illustration from ACAD(Alberta College of Art and Design). She has a lot of experience in creating illustrations and consistent graphics for children's books and graphic novels.
