LESS SHORT BLURB:

COMICS WORKSHOP
Come create comics with award-winning cartoonist & graphic novelist Marek Bennett. Using only blank pages, pencils, ink, & four basic “building blocks” of stories, we’ll craft dynamic characters in rich settings, & bring them to life in comics panels, strips, & pages.  We’ll also look at how artists use peer feedback to improve their work, and how to share our original mini-comics with the world…

  1. I’m scouting about for potential programs to book for Manchester Artists Association meetings–a 45-minute program not a workshop. Passive audience. Is that something you’d be willing to do?
