Comics and Zine Making: Camp Edition

This special camp edition of Comics and Zine-making for teens 15-18 is designed as a condensed preparation for the Dartmouth Comics Art Festival. Students will explore individual and collaborative comic-making and learn photocopy processes that will enable them to create simple but effective zine publications. Cartooning (graphic novels, manga, etc.) will be emphasized through improvised comic jam, a fun and challenging process where the entire class draws one comic simultaneously. Using common and inexpensive materials, such as printer paper, pens, and even dental foss, students will learn simple photocopying and binding techniques through creating two additional comic zines. Students are welcome to attend and distribute their zines as part of the class table at the Dartmouth Comic Arts Festival on Sunday, August 13th. Zines are a unique medium for self-expression with endless possibilities, so all skill levels and styles of drawing are welcome. All materials will be provided, but students are encouraged to bring any preferred drawing materials with which they are already familiar.
