Special Comic Book & Graphic Novel Making Class For Kids Ages 10-18

Join Girdwood Fine Arts Camp for this special week long intensive focused on writing and drawing graphic novels and comics. For 4 hours a day students will work with experienced comic and writing professionals (class is 10a-4p daily with a one hour lunch). Students will be introduced to drawing techniques including character design, perspective and thumbnailing from media professionals. For ages 10-18. 
The class will be led by visiting artist John G. John, a Cleveland based cartoonist known for his work on the Lake Eerie Monster, will be accompanied by Anchorage based journalist Julia O’Malley and cartoonist Lee Post.
Julia will teach writing alongside John, taking what she knows about breaking down complex stories and finding what is important and compelling, and translating it to plotting graphic fiction. Lee will share his unique style of character design and other drawing tricks, many of which he has honed through other teaching artist gigs.
Held at the Girdwood Community Room
Mon- Fri, August 6-10 from 10am-3pm
Cost: $250
