Comic Storytelling (1st-5th) 3:30 - 4:30

Instructor: Leah Yael Levy

Room: 7

Course Fee: $175

Authors have used comics to tell all kinds of stories: myths, adventure, science fiction, fantasy, wacky humor, and true-life tales. Now it's your turn! In this class you will take control of your 2-D drawing surface to make your characters and their worlds come alive. You will strengthen your story by talking with other students who will act as helpful listeners, and read comic books by other authors. Finally, you will combine your own writing and drawings into a comic book of your own to take with you at the end of the class.
