Class for kids to create comics

Creating Comics is a great class for children who enjoy drawing and who like to tell a story with pictures.

Children, ages 8 to 13, learn to create comics and at the same time learn more about how to create and structure a narrative. Students learn to express action and emotions with their drawings. At the last class, students take home a finished comic. The class meets from 4:15 to 5:45 p.m. on four Thursdays beginning Jan. 31.

Teacher Ryan Burns is an accomplished artist and experienced teacher; he is working on his master’s degree in the School of Art. He taught Creating Comics in fall 2012.

This and many other classes and ensembles are offered at the Northern Illinois University Community School of the Arts this spring. The office is located on campus in Room 132 of the Music Building and is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For more information about the class, including details about fees and registration, call 815-753-1450 or visit www.csa.niu.edu.
