Adventures in Visual Storytelling
Adventures in Visual Storytelling
with Ira Marcks
Comics Club! is coming to the Livingston Manor Library on Saturday, June 28. Comic Club! Adventures in Storytelling is a free 3-hour workshop about discovering the art and craft of visual storytelling. Young people ages 9 and up with an interest in art, stories and teamwork are encouraged to register. The program will run from 2:00 to 5:00 pm.
Comics Club! is about making comics. It's about the language of drawing. It’s about encouraging creative ideas, collaborative thinking and a sense of clarity through visual art. The workshop will involve brainstorming, plotting story, character design, developing style and a unique point of view. Students will work together developing plots, sharing options and having fun while expressing themselves.
Workshop leader Ira Marcks is a teacher and illustrator. He works with libraries, schools and museums presenting workshops with a focus on visual storytelling. He also hosts classes at his home-base, Tiger Trap Studio in Troy, NY. His work has appeared in various national publications and comic anthologies. Ira's latest graphic novel is called Witch Knots.
