DATES: June 22 – 26, 2015
Ages: 9 -12 / 9am – 3pm
Create your very own comic strip and art zine! We begin by taking a look at different examples of comics and alternative publications to better understand the techniques of graphic art. Then we learn how to draw, carve, and print our comics using soft-kut linoleum blocks. We combine the arts of printmaking, collage, and bookbinding to make our very own art zines complete with original expressive storylines and artwork. Before the week is over we will also print our comic strips for all to see on t-shirts and tote bags to take home!
