Write Your Own Comic (for beginners)

Write Your Own Comic (for beginners)

Instructor: Jessica Martin

Elementary School, Grades 5-6

July 13 – July 17

Study the art of visual storytelling through the writing of your own comic strip. Grab your pencil, paper, eraser, or your favorite digital drawing app and let’s get creative. Writers will learn basic drawing techniques, create an original character, and draft a story script for their character. Once the script is ready, writers will learn how to create a storyboard layout, draw the comic, color the images, add lettering, and publish your comic.

Campers should be sure to have a pencil set, eraser, fine-tip colored marker set and Deleter white ink or a favorite drawing app like the Procreator App (for the iPad) on their electronic device.

We are where you are!
