Dazzle your friends with your Comics Skills, AND get 2 hours away from your folks! WIN WIN. Take a class here or there, or collect ‘em all and leave with your very own mini-comic/zine and all the skills to make more!

Session 2 (July 12th): CHARACTER DESIGN 101
Session 3 (July 19th): DRAW WHAT YOU SEE: an observational sketchbook seminar

Britt Wilson graduated from Sheridan College with a BAA in Illustration, and has just published her first book of short comics. She lives and works in Toronto’s west end with her fiancé and her cat in what appears to be a perpetual construction site. Grown-ups who want to learn too much about her can check out her art at

I’m looking for a comic/character design workshop for my eight year old this fall. Will you be hosting such a class? Or do you know of a good one in the area?

Thank you very much,
Cheryl Kaplan
