Make Your Own Comic Book - Virtual Program
October 17th 10:30am-12pm - Youth ages 9-16
If you love comic books and think you might like to create one of your own or, if you just want to know more about how they're made, then this workshop is for you! Join comic book writer and video editor Michael Watson on Saturday, October 17th from 10:30am-12pm for a fun and creative lesson on how comic books are made.
Michael will talk a bit about how comics get made and how he got interested in creating them. Then you'll make your own comic page in small groups. There's a role for everyone, whether you like telling stories, drawing pictures, coloring in pictures, or even if you simply have excellent handwriting!
Michael graduated from Ithaca College where he studied cinematography and film studies and has worked for the likes of The History Channel, Google, and DUST. And he's the writer/creator of ITHAQA, a new comic set in Ithaca around the time of the Wharton, Inc. movie studio.
We are excited to be able to offer a virtual version of this program, after the original event scheduled for March 28th was postponed due to local safety recommendations. Our thanks to Buffalo Street Books who offered to host the virtual event, and to the author Michael Watson for his enthusiasm for re-imagining the program for this new format.
Donations to this program will support future issues of ITHAQA as well as Wharton Studio Museum and History Center programs.
Issues of the ITHAQA comic books are available for purchase at Buffalo Street Books.
This event is brought to you by the Wharton Studio Museum, The History Center in Tompkins County, and Buffalo Street Books.
