BIRTHDAYS… ANNIVERSARIES… MEETINGS…
Let’s draw together!
Making comics is a great way to mark your special occasion — a 10th (or 100th) birthday, an anniversary, or just for the fun of it! Marek will guide your group in creating original comics on any topic, & produce a souvenir mini-comic of your group’s artwork…
Here’s how a COMICS WORKSHOP party works:
BEFORE: Gather Your Crew!
INVITATIONS: Print & color some of Marek’s fun artwork to announce your event, or work with Marek to design your own invitations!
PLATFORM: Pick a video streaming account from Marek’s Remote Video Class page.
TEST RUN: We also suggest a test video session (5-15 minutes) a week before the event, to touch base & test our tech connections!
ORDER BOOKS for participants
(contact Marek for special event pricing).
PARTY TIME: Let’s Create Comics!
TIME: 30-60 minutes
GROUP: 1-20 participants
MATERIALS: paper (letter or A6 size) + Pencil and/or black pen
ACTIVITIES: During your event, Marek will guide the group via remote video as we:
- Generate new ideas for stories.
- Create original comics pages!
- Swap feedback & ideas!
- Ink & reveal our finished artwork!
FOCUS: What would you like to draw?
AFTER: Souvenir Mini-Comics!
After your event, Marek can assemble the new artwork into an online gallery and/or a mini-comics booklet for all participants to print & read & enjoy! The format & size is up to you (& the other artists)…
SHARE: Taking Photos of Your Artwork
This page gives some guidelines for taking useful, clear photos of the artwork created during your party! Share with guests…
