Young artists will learn about the beauty of sequential art, from manga to graphic novels! As they learn about artists such as Chris Ware and Kazu Kibuishi, the class will discuss drawing techniques, character design, creative paneling, and storyboarding. Young artists will run with these concepts to create their own stories and characters. Whether seeking to improve sketching skills or fine tune their storytelling abilities, this class has something for every young artist!
