From Peanuts to Batman to Lumberjanes, comic books offer something for everyone! Join Pop Culture Classroom for this exciting summer camp where you will explore the fantastic worlds of superheroes, fantasy creatures, and even people just like yourself, all while exercising your creativity and literacy skills. Each day, you’ll learn comic book storytelling techniques and receive hands-on art instruction from real-life comic book artists. Along the way, you'll learn about and get the chance to use the same tools as real-life comic creators, including tablets, digital drawing software, and high-quality art materials for your final comic. In addition to a new love for the world of comics and their creators, you’ll finish the camp with a fully illustrated comic to call your own! Students do not need to have any experience in art or comics to join.
