Junior Dispatch’s John Simcoe is visiting York County libraries this summer to help kids create their very own comics.
The program, which lasts about one-and-a-half hours, focuses on the basics of creating a comic book with the help of a few handouts. The key to the whole program is a “blank” comic book which kids use to create their very own unique illustrated story.
Prior to class, youngsters are encouraged to think of a story they would like to create, as well as coming up with three characters to star in their comic book.
If you’re already an artist, bring along your sketchbook and show it off to the class.
Catch a class at the following York County libraries. Be sure to call the library to register for a spot.
