One of the summer programs I’m teaching this year is, “See Yourself In A Comic,” at Place des Arts. This is a unique way of approaching comics, as it puts the student in the comic as the main character. Over the course of five days, we design characters, write a script and use photographs to make a sequential panelled story.
I can’t show you the finished products (due to legal and contractual reasons,) but I can show you some of the pre-design work the kids did. This was a class of 8-12 year olds, who all had a blast starring in their own comic.
The classes continue throughout July and part of August, are one-week each, and are for one hour. There is still some room left in a few of the classes – so sign up now!
