Tom's back in-person! Tom Hart returns again in 2023 to run a Week-Long Comics Workshop for Students, Teachers and other Visionaries at our Gainesville Studio!

This workshop will be tailored to the workshop cohort and will probably include:

  • 3 or 4 mini-comic making workshops on different themes.
  • Collaborative projects.
  • Pedagogical discussions, on how we can use comics to reach people, communicate and how to teach with comics to any population.
  • "Rummage sessions" in which we look through the SAW library for inspiration and make specific guided projects based on what we find.
  • Outdoor life/art activities including potentially a Florida Springs trip, or a wildlife trip.
  • Quests of various kinds, turned into story.
  • History dive!
  • Imaginative exercises.
  • Interactive exercises.
  • Personal stories and myth.
  • Storytelling card games.
  • Evening social events including karaoke at Depot Park.

This will not be a single-project workshop, but instead will focus on discovery and the potential of comics and its role in our life and work.

We're so eager to see you again!

When - Monday July 24 through to Friday July 28

Where - This is an in person event. This is not virtual. So jump in your car/ride your bike/take a stroll down to the SAW/GFAA building, 1314 S Main Street, Gainesville, Florida. Park next to the gallery or in the Winn Dixie parking lot. Enter through the front door (the one with the big SAW logo) or side gate to the left hand side of the building (don't worry, there will be signs).

Who - This program is focused on discovering comics' use in a classroom, even our own as lifelong learners. We're hoping to bring together educators and community visionaries to learn how comics can be used to focus a light on life, to help build community and empower all.

Our Covid policy - We continue to encourage all members of our community to be vaccinated. While masks are not required in the space, we ask all participants to respect other peoples choices and requests. Ongoing precautions include increased cleaning and reduced class sizes.

If anyone feels symptoms they are asked to notify us and stay at home until they've received a negative test. We're a small group who are good friends, lets stay safe and protect each other.

Please reach out to Emma @ SAW if you have any questions or require accommodations to attend.
