Populating Your Universe (Characters, Shape Vocabulary, and Rapid Creation.)

Visualizing a character's stance by their stance, within a wall of ugly (and otherwise) mugs.

This summer, 7000 BC will pull your comic project into focus with workshops to explore aspects of your vision -- and improve on them! Shed the peripheral and reveal your concepts as we accompany you through your creative process.

Our 8-week Pay-What-You-Can Summer Workshop Series is designed to run as a companion to the comic that you are creating now. Each Saturday, you'll be using your own project in a workshop illuminating a different topic. From refining your characters' image to designing your pages to keeping the costs down, we'll help you overcome obstacles and clarify your insights.

Who: Teens and Adults
All classes work individually or as a series. Workshops highlighted in blue are linked and currently available for registration.
What to bring: Drawing Implement (preferably dark) and paper or digital equivalent. And YOUR comic project. 
How much: Workshops are Pay-What-You-Can. Suggested donation $25 per workshop. Need-based scholarships available. 
Want to check it out? Drop-in students are welcome.
