Learn to Draw Comics, Manga style!

Hey, teens! Do you like manga?  Want to make your own comic?  If so, then don’t miss the opportunity to learn from the best!  Come to a Comic Art Workshop for ages 11-18 at the Falmouth Public Library on Wednesday, August 22nd from 3:30 to 4:45 PM taught by the dynamic duo, Andy and Veronica Fish. You’ll draw characters, learn about manga, story-telling and how to make your own comic!

“What is manga?” you ask.  Manga is the Japanese word for comics, and in Japan, manga is a very popular literary art form enjoyed by all ages, not just kids!  Andy reports, “Japanese comics are quickly taking hold in the United States and gaining popularity everyday.” Often based on popular sports stars or history, they tackle subjects and situations uniquely their own. 

During the workshop participants will have an in-depth look at the history of manga and its relation to American comics, followed by a hands-on workshop offering techniques, tricks and advanced storytelling in a manga style.

Instructor-author-artist Andy Fish studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and the Rhode Island School of Design.  He currently teaches youth and adult art programs at the Higgins Education Wing of the Worcester Art Museum, as well as at Emerson College in Boston.  He is the author of four how-to art books and six graphic novels.

Andy’s wife and co-instructor, Veronica Fish, was educated at the School of Visual Arts in New York and the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston.  She works as a freelance illustrator and designer.  Her work has been featured in many publications and gallery shows in Massachusetts, New York and Los Angeles.  In 2008 she and Andy launched RoboPicto for progressive art projects.

This workshop is free, thanks to the generous support from the Trustees of the Falmouth Public Library.
