The collective will be displaying loads of new art work down at Danger Room Comics in downtown Oly this weekend – please do stop by!

“Speaking in Pictures”
Let Chelsea Baker teach you how to effectively convey stories and ideas by pairing words with pictures. Chelsea has a BA in Comics and Sequential Art and has taught comics workshops for over five years. In this program, students will learn how to structure images and writing to fit a multi-panel format. Materials include bristol board (or any available paper) and a non-photo blue pencil. Students are encouraged to experiment with a variety of pens, brushes, and inks to finalize their work. As a group, the class will select works by each student to be published in a class zine.
Ages 14 and up, all levels of drawing abilities
Tuesdays, February 21st – March 20th
3pm – 5pm
Cost: $125 for five classes
***Prospective students are encouraged to attend a free informational meeting on Tuesday, February 14th. Drop by anytime between 4-5 P.M. to ask questions, meet the instructor, and have the opportunity to test-drive a variety of pens and brushes.
