Children and families are invited to join us for an afternoon of creative story making with comic creator and local artist Nicole Wolf. From fast-paced exercises designed to explore storytelling and spark creativity, to basics like drawing panels, using word balloons and developing characters, Nicole will lead us through the stages of bringing a story to life. This workshop will give beginner and intermediate comic-makers new tools to use as they create their own stories. Suggested for ages 10 and up, but younger siblings are welcome to join.
