    Making Your Own Comics

    With Stephen Moore. Grades 6-8 Do you like comics, Manga, and cartoons? We will learn the art of storyboarding and paneling, turning our ideas and words into pictures and drawings. We will create our own stories, with characters and environments, and eventually turn them into our own short comic strip. Don’t worry if you don’t draw often! This isn’t a drawing class - it’s a class about putting ideas onto paper in image form. Register Now for Making Your Own Comics
