Comics and Graphic Novels Camp: 10-13

In this camp, students take their illustrations to the next level by creating their own unique comics and graphic novels. Emphasis is placed on storytelling, introducing students to character development, plot structure, scripting, and storyboarding. Skills in penciling, inking, coloring, space, and perspective are introduced through the use of a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional media, such as colored pencils, oil pastels, watercolors, digitally edited drawings, and handmade zines. Artist presentations, trips to the Art Institute of Chicago, and visits to downtown Chicago's vast array of public art provide inspiration and drawing practice as an entry into the basics of comic narrative and stylization.

"Students had different styles of art, some beginners, some more advanced. Everyone was supported and encouraged."

– Parent of student in Comics and Graphic Novels
