Documentary Comics

with Camilo Aguirre
Thursdays: July 16, 23, 30; 6-8pm CDT

In this 3-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 towards creating their own documentary story.

Certificate: 6 hours, Category C or D

*We are offering a reduced rate to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) participants to honor equity and increase access and artistic opportunities for those who have historically been underrepresented in the book arts. For individuals to whom this does not apply, register at the rate listed first and, if you are able, consider making a donation when registering to support MCBA’s efforts to make reduced rates available. 

Participants are responsible for sourcing their own supplies. Participants will need their preferred paper, drawing, and illustration tools. Teaching artists will answer questions about materials in advance of the workshop start date.

Please note: Registration closes July 8 to allow enough time for participants to acquire supplies.
