Studio B Fine Art Gallery in Boyertown announces that registration is now open for a summer Comic Book workshop for students aged 13-18 facilitated by Ozzie Sneddon, the gallery’s resident artist/teacher.
The workshop will be held virtually over four weeks on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. beginning July 8.
Parents can sign up by sending the one-time $200 payment by check to Studio B, 39A E. Philadelphia Ave., Boyertown, PA 19512, or through PayPal on Studio B’s website (studiobbb.org) with the message “(Student Name) is signing up for Ozzie’s Sneddon’s Class.” Early registration is recommended as class size is limited to the first 8 registrants.
Registrants will receive an email with a link to the Discord Server that the student will use to join the class. The Discord Server is where classes are held and where students can get in contact with the instructor if they have questions.
Each student will create a 3 to 5 -page comic during the course of the workshop. Each week will focus on a different aspect of creation.
Week 1 - Storyboarding / Writing the Comic
Week 2 - Designing the Environment and Characters for your comic.
Week 3 - Inking/Coloring, Color Theory.
Week 4 - Finalizing.
“Keeping the creative juices flowing is important,” noted Sneddon. “Once (home)school is finished for the year, my regular students will be eager to continue our work together is some fashion, and I’ll be eager to share with them the process and techniques I use in my own creative work.
“Plus, this virtual workshop may give new students an opportunity to explore an area of art they have not yet developed,” he concluded.
