Documentary Comics

with Camilo Aguirre
Saturdays: May 15, 22, 29; 10am-12pm CT

In this three-week workshop, Camilo Aguirre will share his artistic process and the developmental strategies he uses to create his comics. Beginning with an introduction to various formats used in documentary comics, the workshop covers the importance of point of view in the comic—who we are and what our position is in the world—as well as identifying blind spots and how to address them.

Throughout the workshop, participants will work toward creating their own documentary story.

All skill levels welcome!
