Let your imagination come to life on paper! In this introductory Zoom class series we will explore how to design characters, build imaginary worlds, and tell stories through pictures. All you need is a pencil, some paper and most importantly--your creativity!
Students will learn how to design cartoon characters, create imaginary worlds through comics and how to tell stories through comics. Students will need a computer with internet access, paper, pencils, pens and any other art supplies lying around at home!
