Comics & Cartooning - 10 weeks

Comics & Cartooning - 10 weeks


Do you love comics and cartoon characters? Have you ever wanted to write your own stories and put them into comic format?

Kids will learn the process of drawing their own comics in this intro cartooning class. Students will be shown how to plan out a comic by starting with writing a script and creating rough thumbnail sketches. We will then cover the steps of comic creation, such as drawing cartoon characters, character turnarounds, lettering & speech bubbles, and using pen & ink to outline our comic artwork.
