Maybe your interest is a Super Hero, your own life story, or you-know-it’s-in there-somewhere-dying to get out. Don’t worry if you think you can’t draw. Barbara will teach you how to develop characters, plot stories and offer tips on the creative process. “Bring your work!” she says, “And if you don’t have any, let’s get started!”
In this four-session workshop, participants will learn about the creative process of making a graphic novel, how to write a character study, building a narrative, and creating layouts.
There are a total of 12 spots open in this small-group workshop.
