Between The Panels: Summer Visions Comics Workshops

Between The Panels Comics Workshops | Saturdays June 4 - July 23, 2022 | 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM MST | Online | Pay-What-You-Can

Bring a Fresh Eye to Your Comics With Summer Visions!

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.

Register now to discover new tools to shape your vision!

Improve your ability to communicate through word and image.
