Camp Kala • Adventures in Comics! • Ages 6-11

Join us for a 4-day week full of comics, characters, and visual storytelling! Using mixed media, such as crayons, pens, ink with a brush, and even watercolor, participants will create characters and take them on adventures to unknown places in the wildlands of their imagination. We will play with sound effects, expressions, movement, and backgrounds. How many panels does it take to tell a joke? How many for an outer space adventure? How does a camera angle affect the drama? We will take inspiration from some of the characters and creators of our favorite comics to create our own stories.
