Comics & Graphic Novels Scribes for 5-6th 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. The week will culminate with a reading and/or presentation of student work.
This camp is for students entering 5-6th grade in Fall 2023 and will take place online using Zoom.
Scribes Summer camps are offered on a scaled registration rate in order to offer financially accessible programming for all youth. Payments above the 100% rate help offset costs that allow for accessible programming to continue. Donations of any amount can also be made upon registration. Scholarships are also available by filling out our scholarship application. Questions? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
