Folktales, Fairy Tales, Monsters, Myths & Legends: A Comics Workshop

  • University of Vermont, Billings Library, Marsh Room 48 University Place Burlington, VT, 05405 United States (map)

Join New Hampshire teaching artist Marek Bennett for this hands-on comic creation lab, featureing source materials from UVM Special Collections, the Vermont Folklife Center, or materials you bring along.

We’ll look at basic techniques of cartooning and comics creation, then try our hands at drawing original comics based on folk tales, fairy tales, myths and legends. Our discussions will address elements of readability, visual impact, point of view, research, and the  responsibilities of the artist as an interpreter of traditional tales and cultures.

This event will be held at the Billings Library at the University of Vermont.

Registration: The workshop is limited to 25 participants. Registration is required.
