Spring Comics Classes at Little Island

Posted by: Andrew on: February 16, 2015

Join us at Little Island for spring Comics Classes with Megan Kearney!

This session, we’ll have 6 weeks of classes, plus a double-class during March Break. You can join us just for the March Break class, or take the entire course.

Our instructor, Megan Kearney, will lead students through the steps of comics-creation, from character design to page layouts; they’ll learn techniques like pencilling and inking, and they’ll be introduced to screen tones and working with art markers.

The March Break Cover & Colour double-class will be on Monday, March 16th, from 1pm – 4pm. Students will create and colour a cover design, and will be supplied with Copic colour markers for this class (included in course fee).

Dates and Payment Info
Classes will be Monday nights, 5:00pm – 6:30pm, except for the March Break Cover & Colour class, which will be 1-4pm on Monday, March 16th.

  • The March Break Cover & Colour class (1pm – 4pm on March 16th) is $75.
  • The full set of classes (6 weeks plus the March Break double-class) will be $199 (tax incl.).

I would like to order some comics for the library, can you help me with this?

Hi Betty. Our library services team just emailed you directly. Thanks for being in touch!

I was wondering whether a summer session might be offered.
Thanks
Lisa
