Western Academy's Comics Camp introduces students to the wonderful world of comics. Students will learn about the history of comics and the vital role this artistic medium has played in American culture over the last several decades. Special emphasis will be placed on understanding how the text-image combinations make the magic of comics possible. Students will closely read excerpts from a few select age-appropriate comics to whet their appetite. Lastly, students will write and illustrate their own comic featuring either an original storyline or an adaptation of a classic narrative.
