« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Calling all artists and comic fans! Spend a fun-filled week learning all about basic comic production and narrative art! Gain skills in drawing, visual storytelling, character design, page layout, composition, perspective, and the addition of text, through hands-on practice and visual presentations. By the end of the week, you will have found your unique narrative voice through group conversations, sketching exercises, and storyboarding ideas. No experience necessary, and all art skill levels are welcome!

During this camp you will create your own short, penciled, inked, and lettered comic pages to keep. You will go home with some basic art supplies, a sketchbook, and newfound enthusiasm for telling stories through comic art.

Please read:  Before bringing your child to camp, please read through this list. Following these steps will help us assure that your child is safe, healthy, and has tons of fun at camp!

  • Need help finding your child’s classroom? Campus maps are available here.
      • Always send your child with a snack and a drink. Food = mood, and we want campers to be at their best! No food is available on campus.
      • Please be sure you have notified us of any behavioral or medical conditions we need to be aware of to help your child have a successful week at camp.
      • Campers need to be signed out every day by the individuals who have been approved by parent or legal guardian to pick them up, and are required to show a photo ID every day.
      • In order to protect the privacy and security of all minors on our campus, photographs by parents and family members in class are not permitted. Instructors and Extension staff often take photos and may share them with campers’ families via email once camp has concluded. Campers’ name tags will be removed for these photographs to respect and protect privacy. Please contact the Extension office directly if you do not want your child to be included in any photographs taken by our staff.
      • Cell phones or hand held games may not be used during camps.
