Apply to attend a “Making Comics” workshop with Graphic Artist Lynda Barry


Cornerstone Arts Week is very happy to offer students a rare opportunity to attend one of Lynda Barry’s famed creativity workshops. A limited number of CC students will be accepted on a competitive basis to participate in a hands-on workshop titled Drawing Words and Speaking Pictures: This Mysterious Thing We Call Comics, to be held on Friday, February 2 at 1 p.m.

Workshop description:

Lynda Barry leads a lively drawing jam for anyone who is interested in making comics. You don’t need any artistic ability to be part of this class, but you must be willing to draw bravely. We’ll be learning fast drawing techniques that anyone can do to create instant characters, story lines, and the spook-house kind of excitement that comes about when people who don’t know each other get together in a single room and suddenly have to start making pictures together.

Lynda Barry bio:

Creator of the comic strip Ernie Pook’s Comeek, Lynda Barry is widely credited with expanding the literary, thematic, and emotional range of American comics. She has published over twenty books, including Picture This: The Near-Sighted Monkey Book, What It Is, and The Good Times Are Killing Me, which was adapted into an off-Broadway play.
