Comic Foundations Workshop

Instructor:  Audrey Greenlees

With Audrey as your guide, learn the basics of storytelling with these creative drawing and comic classes! We will cover foundational skills such as shapes, proportion, perspective, inking, colour, and shadow, with a focus on using those skills to draw comics. Students will start by creating short comic strips and may progress to longer stories if they desire; students will take home comic strips, perspective drawings, paintings, and a mini-zine. ALL Supplies are included in price of the workshop.
