What you'll learn in this kids writing class:

In this workshop, students will learn how to use cartooning vocabulary to tell their own stories, from ordinary, everyday events to the most fantastic realms of a child’s imagination. Little art experience is needed, just an interest and a passion for making work. 

Students will be taught every stage of comics illustration development, including pin-ups, single-frame and multi-frame pages, using art materials such as pencil, pen, ink wash and watercolor and collage materials.  

At the end of the semester, all the students will participate in a gallery show at the WordUp Bookstore, and have their best work printed in a class anthology, giving everyone a chance to have their work spotlighted and celebrated.
