We'll cover bookmaking, drawing basics, anatomy, perspective, characters, gestures, expression, plot, storytelling, word balloons and lettering with fun activities and make lots and lots of comics!!

June 6th- bookmaking, figure and expression- we will make our own sketchbooks which we will use through all sessions and learn about gesture and expression and make silent comics where the characters expressions tell the story 

June 13th- characters- we will learn about character types and identifying features, as well as creating our own characters, thinking about their back stories, desires, dislikes, best and worst qualities and write a one to two page comic about them

June 20th- World building- we will cover creating interior and exterior scenes with instruction on perspective and make comics about a journey in a simplified drawing style

June 27th- plot and storytelling- talk about pacing and narrative arc and using an activity called "Bibliomancy" create a four-page comic using random prompts to create their stories
