We are so happy to announce an upcoming spooky workshop event hosted by our October Comics Creator in Residence Cleopatria Peterson on October 30th, 6:30- 8:30pm at CCOL:
All Treat no Trick: A Halloween Comic Jam
In this workshop, Cleopatria will be demonstrating a few inking techniques, discussing their work, and facilitating collaborative zine making. Participants will be able to use spooky/cute/kitschy Halloween prompts to create collaborative comics!
This workshop is free and open to anyone of any skill level; you do not need to have made comics or illustrations previously to attend!
Drawing supplies will be provided (blank zines, paper, pencils, markers, pens, a few brushes and ink…), but participants are encouraged to bring their favourite inking tools 🙂
