Making Comics (MCBA / Loft combo camp)

Making Comics: An MCBA/Loft Combo Class
Monday-Friday, July 10-14; 9am-12pm
For students ages 6-8

In this fun comics class, students are introduced to the standard building blocks for producing a successful comic story: character and story development, conceptualizing a main protagonist; developing a narrative for their main characters to inhabit. Once we have the building blocks down, we'll practice our new found skills in our own hand-bound sketchbook while also learning to utilize the variety of effects that different kinds of panels have on story, how they interact with one another across the page, and how text and dialogue are used to enhance our work. The remainder of class will be dedicated to allowing students to apply their story to a mini-comic that they can keep open ended to finish up later on. Comic writing lessons are taught upstairs at the Loft, and are applied to hand made books downstairs at Minnesota Center for Book Arts.

$277.50 ($249.75 MCBA or Loft members)
