Taught by Lisa Eisenberg

Explore the collaborative possibilities of comics creation while learning about story structure and zine-making!  Participants in this workshop will create “jam comics”–comics made by multiple authors and artists that still tell a clear story. In the process, each participant will also learn to make an easily reproducible one-page zine. For students in grades 6-8.
