Comics of Color
Sat, Feb 15th, 11 AM
Interactive Workshop/MCC Lounge
Comics are an extraordinary source of modern storytelling and expression; they can preserve and bring to life our history, imagination, memories, and ideas. In this comics workshop, teaching artist Allegra Jones will expand on perceptions of what comic making can be. In this workshop, participants will create their own comics in the format of zines (mini magazines) using stories from their backgrounds and the expansive worlds of their own imagination. Allegra Jones is a half African-American, half Italian artist who has been teaching for Community Arts Partnership (CAP) at Center for the Arts Eagle Rock for five years. She studied Experimental Animation at California Institute of the Arts where she found her love for comics.
