Comic Art and Writing


Jul 17,2011, 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ 826 Valencia
Do you love to read comics? Do you wish you could create your own? Well, now you can, with this one-day workshop taught by a fourteen-year-old cartoonist*! First we’ll get to spend time reading some famous comic strips like Peanuts, Garfield, FoxTrot, and more. Then we’ll learn about how to draw comics, create characters, and set up gags. At the end of the workshop, you’ll walk away with your very own comic strip or cartoon – just like the ones in the newspapers, only drawn by YOU!

*We are delighted to have Emma Capps, a former student at 826 Valencia, back to teach her very own workshop (with support from the 826 Valencia staff) now that she has produced comic strips, books, and cards of her own, not to mention been  nationally recognized for her art!
