In this 8 week course, writer and illustrator Gio Benedetti will guide participants through each step in creating, writing, drawing and inking their own original 8-12 page 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 Comic Anthology Volume 1. Supplies will be distributed at curbside. Non-Petaluma registrants must register by March 13th in order to arrange for pick-up of supplies at their home branch during curbside. Ages 10-19.
