Comic Drawing

Hello Girls and Boys grades 3 to 6! Come along and draw your own comics! We will make comics, strips, and mini-comics, with our art, characters and stories. Whether jokes, fairy tales, animals, heroes or diaries, the
cartoonist and publisher Richard Cowdry will give you valuable tips and techniques, showing you how to use the magic of comics for yourself. In a series of workshops we will do fun drawing exercises and learn how to tell a story with pictures – skills which will help not only with comics and graphic novels, but also with storyboards for films, computer games and animation. We will devote ourselves to the narrative, drawing both from the world around us and our imagination. Pencils, paper and comic examples are provided. For more information or registration please write to Richard Cowdry
