Vermont Teens: Win A Scholarship Create Comics Workshop!


For the eighth year in a row, The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS) has donated a full scholarship to the Vermont Department of Libraries so a Vermont teen can attend the Create Comics summer workshop camp.

Create Comics is a ‘boot camp’ for cartoonists. The 5-day workshop packs in the essentials for producing your own comics. Through lectures, exercises, and group projects, students learn about story structure, page composition, pacing, materials and techniques, character design, drawing, environmental drawing, and production. Students collaborate on a comic anthology that they self-publish during the workshop. Create Comics is for both beginner and advanced students age 16 and over.

Any Vermont student age 16 or older is eligible. This year the workshop will take place in White River Junction, Vermont, June 20-24 or July 11-15, 2016.
