Melding words and pictures, comics have a unique power to harness the imagination's creative storytelling potential.
Happy Harbor Comics' Drawn to Write Camps will lead campers into this fantastic world of comics creation.
IN THE BEGINNING
July 19-21, 2017
TO BE CONTINUED
July 26-28, 2017
AND IN CONCLUSION
July 22-23, 2017
Please Note: Age limits for "To Be Continued" will be waived for younger campers who
have done "In the Beginning" two or more times and would like to advance.
* Please note that this fee includes a $45 non-refundable fee. No refunds will be made if an applicant is accepted into the camp but cancels his/her registration after the deadline of July 16th, 2017. However, a full refund will be made in the event the applicant is not accepted into the program. The tuition fee includes instruction, art supplies, a daily snack, a printed anthology of the comics created at the camp, and a launch party for the final anthology project.
Each of the multi-day camps are divided into a writing and drawing component, featuring interactive exercises designed to develop skills in the written and illustrated components of comics creations. Each camp will get progressively more detailed and delve into deeper subjects in the creation process. Campers should be prepared to draw all day, and as well as enhancing their understanding and appreciation of the comics medium and the creative community behind it. These curriculums have been prepared with care by instructors with years of experience in education, fine arts, and comic book creation.
In the Beginning:
Campers will be taken step by step through the process of creating a comic, as well as enjoying fun comic-related activities. By the end of the camp, they will have each created a 1-page comic.
To Be Continued:
Campers will be taken through advanced techniques in graphic storytelling, idea creation and development, and learn more about the business side of comic book creation. By the end of the camp, they will have each created a 1-page comic which will be published in an anthology.
And In Conclusion:
This 2-day camp will focus on the fine details of creating a fully realized graphic story. Learning how to fine-tune the story and art, and learning about the business and promotion, will be the focus of the camp. Participants should already have a specific story idea they'd like to develop before the camp starts. In this camp, Drawn-to-Writers will be given extra time to complete their comic to be published in anthology.
In order to give Drawn-to-Writers the full experience of publishing a comic, all participants of Drawn to Write are strongly encouraged to attend the anthology launch party, where they will sign comics for the crowds that turn up to buy the book.
Each participant will receive a basic comic art kit as part of their camp experience, which is included in the camp fee. The kit will include the following supplies†, provided by Delta Art and Drafting Supply:
† Participants are encouraged to bring their own supplies if they have materials they would prefer to use and/or would like to augment their work with materials not included in the kit provided.
Participants are expected to bring their own lunches to each day of the camp. A group snack will be provided each day for all participants, and is included in the camp fee. There will be a vegetarian option. Please notify us of any food allergies or sensitivities.
Our fully insured instructors and supervisors are knowledgeable comics creators, curators, and enthusiasts. Each is a devoted member of Happy Harbor's artist community, including past participants of Happy Harbor's Artist-in-Residence Program.
