This introductory course will teach students the complete set of techniques needed to create and illustrate compelling characters and stories, just like the ones in their favorite comic books.

At the start of the week, campers will learn about the important aspects of character design and work to bring characters to life by mapping a plot arc. After conceptualizing their story, they will draw panels and storyboards. Campers will also learn the art of typography, filling their pages with dynamic hand lettering. At the end of the week, each student will walk away with their very own hand-constructed comic book.
