Do you love comics and graphic novels, but have trouble putting your ideas into action? Have you always wanted to have your comics published for the world to see?
Starting on March 20th, 2021, Gio Benedetti, writer and illustrator, will be working with SCL to put on an 8 week comic workshop. In this course, Gio Benedetti will guide participants through each step in creating, writing, drawing and inking their own original 8-12 page mini-comic.
The class will go over techniques for writing for comics, graphic story-telling concepts, comic layout, materials, and - most importantly - following through to completion!
At the end of the 8 weeks, each participant will have their own 8-12 page mini-comic which will be collected and published as our collective Mini-Comic Anthology Volume 1. Registrants must be between the ages of 10 and 19 years old.
The comic workshop will take place on Saturdays 11-noon via Zoom. Supplies will be provided to registrants via curbside pick-up one week prior to the course beginning. This is an 8-week series of classes and will require a commitment to complete all 8 sessions. The comic anthology will be printed and circulated through the Sonoma County Library system for everyone to enjoy. Who doesn’t want to add published comic author to their resume?
Space is limited to 25 participants and will go quickly.
Course dates: 3/20, 3/27, 4/10, 4/17, 4/24, 5/1, 5/8, 5/15.
No class on 4/3 to accommodate Spring Break.
