This workshop is for teens entering grades 8-12. 

Join teaching artist Janice Liu of Young Artists' Place for a two-part workshop on creating your own short comic stories. In part one, we'll brainstorm our own stories using a provided prompt, talk about how to outline a story, and write a script. Participants will get to work on a standalone one- or two-page comic story, and get help and feedback from a working artist in the process. It's a great way to kick-start your imagination, and provide you with some of the skills and tools for creating longer comic stories. 

Registration is required and can be done online or in person.
Signing up for part 1 automatically signs you up for part 2! 
Registration opens on Friday, June 14th.

Check out more Julia's Studio workshops here.
