Comics and Graphic Novels Scribes, 7-8th grade
Learn the fundamentals of making comics and graphic novels in this half-day, week-long camp, focusing on a different theme or genre each day — including visual storytelling, character creation, graphic memoir, and humor. We’ll look at a variety of inspiring works by world-class cartoonists en route to making our own creations; a mix of writing prompts and drawing instruction will round out each day. All levels of drawing experience are welcome. This camp will be facilitated by Greg Stump, a comic writer, graphic novelist, and educator.
This camp is for students entering 7th & 8th grade in Fall 2022 and will take place online using Zoom and Google Classroom.
Scholarships are available by application. Questions? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
