Ages 8 to 11: Creating Comics – 7/15 to 8/5
Sundays from 3 – 5 pm
July 15th – August 5th
Our students will learn the basics of drawing, design and storytelling… basically everything they’ll need to know to create their own comic or graphic novel! Students will be introduced to character design, story structure, storyboarding, world building, style exploration and more. Fundamentals of solid drawing, dynamic action, page layout, and appealing design will guide students towards creating believable characters and compelling visual storytelling. Students will even get the chance to contribute 2-4 pages to our Comics Zine- and they’ll get a copy of course!

About the teacher:
Julien Shields is an illustrator and comics artist that’s been teaching comic-making for years, including at after school programs for middle schoolers. He enjoys writing and illustrating his own stories as well as collaborating with authors. His work is usually all ages, with a loose, spontaneous style, but he likes to explore a variety of subject matters and is always looking for a fresh way to approach his drawing. When he isn’t drawing, you can find him surfing, playing board games, or working here at Mischief!
