Saturday, April 18th, 10:30am-1:30pm (EST)
Remote! (Live Zoom Meetings)
See Map
Level: For Everyone
Adult (18+)
12 seats max

This is a basic class in using personal stories to create comics, for people who have never drawn at all, and for experienced artists alike. Students will do a series of short writing exercises utilizing their own and their classmates' memories and stories, and from these, will create a short (one-to-two-page) comic based on these. Students can expect to leave with a clear understanding of how to create visual stories, and will also experience the power and empathy that comes from witnessing and valuing their own stories, and those of their classmates.

About GrubStreet Remote Classes

GrubStreet will be hosting all of our classes remotely from now through the month of April. We’ve decided as a staff that the best thing we can do for our community is to follow the advice of public health experts, and participate in the social distancing that’s recommended to help slow the spread of disease. You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! You’ll receive an email from your instructor on the day your class is scheduled with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information. 

For a glimpse at how remote learning works, look no further than the deep Zoom discussion of writing and literature below:
