Zoom Program: Family Icon Comics Workshop
This workshop, for 7-12-year-olds, guides you in the creation of your own iconic image (or, 'Splash Page') from a favorite family story, using the visual language of icon painting AND comic book cartooning.
How is a comic book like an icon?
Both traditions use stylized, eye-catching images to guide readers through complex stories using a language unique to the medium.
This workshop guides you in the creation of your own iconic image (or, in comics parlance, a 'Splash Page') from a favorite family story, using the visual language of icon painting AND comic book cartooning.
Participants can work with family members as an intergenerational team, or each can work on their own original page.
Use a family story, and maybe a photograph or two, or design an original icon/splash page based on one of a roster of saints provided by the museum.
No experience needed.
Everyone can draw comics!
This program will be conducted via Zoom.
