Graphic Humor for 5-8th grade

Create concepts, draw characters, and tell stories all with an eye for humor in this workshop taught by an allegedly funny professional cartoonist. From parodies to gag cartoons, we'll explore a wide range of forms as we explore graphic hilarity through a mix of writing prompts, drawing instruction, and close examinations of work by some of the funniest comics artists of all time. All levels of drawing experience are welcome.

This workshop is for students in 5-8th grade and will take place in-person at Hugo House. Please read our current COVID-19 policies before registering for this workshop.

Scholarships are available by application. Questions? Please email
