6 SPOTS still open for tomorrow's comic making workshop!

Author Cara Bean held her book signing event at Maxima bookstore in Lexington this evening.  Lucky us, she is staying in town to host our event!

There is still time to register!


Join this comics workshop that will have you quickly filling panels with narration and imagery that will let your imagination come to life! The workshop begins with a brief conversation about the unique mechanics of how comics can tell stories. We’ll explore how to come up with a storyline, develop a character, and discuss other topics related to writing and drawing comics. Then we do some simple doodle exercises to generate ideas. Next we experiment with some inspiring comic formats to tell our own stories and share if we feel comfortable doing so.

Kids may be dropped off for this event, caregivers are welcome to stay

Class is best for age 7 and up, however, younger children are welcome to sign up with caregiver.
