Students will learn figure, object, and landscape drawing, composition, and storytelling techniques. At the end of the 12-week class, participants will be able to take home their mini-graphic novel.

The fee is $15 per class or $150 for the full 12-week session (a $30 discount). A credit card may be used in person or over the phone to pay for the session in full. Otherwise, only cash or checks are accepted for weekly class payments.
