Ages 10-14
Love reading comics and drawing? This graphic novel class allows students to explore the art of storytelling through illustration.

Students will develop their unique skills in sketching, storyboarding, creating characters and the worlds they live in, and put their ideas on paper. Students will produce their own graphic novel or zine for personal or portfolio use.

In order to help ensure the comfort and safety of all visitors and staff, as of August 11, the WAG has a mandatory face covering policy in place. We ask that all guests aged 5 and older wear a mask, scarf, or bandana that covers the nose and mouth while in public spaces at the Gallery.

As per our reopening protocols announced in May, we encourage physical distancing, tables/chairs/supplies are sanitized frequently, and all staff and patrons are asked to self-screen before coming.

You can read more about our safety measures here.
