Queertooning: Finding & Expressing Yourself Through Comics – Spring 2023

Whether you already dabble in comics or are a self-proclaimed “person who can’t draw,” you are welcome here! In this cartooning workshop, we will look at different examples of self-discovery and self-expression through comics. We will do some quick drawing and writing exercises to get warmed up and generate ideas. In the second half of the class, we will explore and share possible project ideas and applications for moving forward with the comics medium. The goal is to leave with a plan for how to put your ideas into action.

Erin Fitzgerald (a.k.a. “A Girl Named Earl”) is a multi-directional artist and arts enthusiast. She draws a cartoon series called SPECTRUM, which is (mostly) about Neurodivergence and Queerness. 

This class is offered in partnership with the Lexington Pride Center and Read With Pride. 

This class is suitable for all levels.
