Work as a family to make your own comics story! In this hands-on workshop you'll learn how a cartoonist uses shape, size, and line to write with images. Then each family will divide up into a team consisting of a writer, artist, and letterer, switching between jobs with every page. The result is an improvisational cartoon story you create together. Cartoonist and teaching artist Jerzy Drozd's comics work has been published nationally and has taught comics classes all around Michigan and beyond. Price includes three family members (two adults or one adult and one child) and supplies for one shared project. No children under five years of age, all children must be accompanied by an adult.
