Many of history’s most celebrated comics have been in the form of short multi-panel strips. In this workshop, led by local cartoonist Max Weiss, students will take a closer look at the character design, pacing, and narrative elements that make these classic comics so beloved, and employ those techniques in creating newspaper-ready comic strips of their own.

This workshop is FREE, aimed at young students aged 12–18, and limited to 12 participants.
