Youth Camps and Classes

Art classes and camps for youth

MCBA is proud to partner with other fantastic centers across the Twin Cities to encourage curiosity and exploration in visual arts, music, theatre, dance, history, photography/video, cooking, writing, and other creative endeavors. These unique partnerships give your child the opportunity to expand their creativity and explore many different art forms hands-on!

These classes are designed for youth to attend independently; for workshops where kids and their adults can work side-by-side, please visit our Family Classes page.

Summer/Fall 2015 Youth Camps and Classes


Making Comics

Making Comics
Saturday, October 10; 9am–noon
For students ages 6-8

Do you enjoy reading comics? Have you ever thought of making one yourself? In this combo class, you will learn all about the building blocks of comics: panels, text, pacing, and so on, as well as how to conceptualize your characters and story. These combined efforts of form and content will result in a unique comic story of your own making. Students will then venture downstairs to MCBA to bind their original comic story into a handmade comic book and, time permitting, to construct a variety of books for sketching and use as a portfolio.

$58.50 ($52.65 MCBA or Loft members)
