Online Comic Book Workshops

Learn how to make your very own comics!

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Do I have to have any experience? No, all level of artists are welcome. But you do need to be ready to do a lot of drawing!
  • How much is the workshop? Free!
  • Who can participate? The workshops are being offered to students in grades 3-8 in the four SRSLY communities of Chelsea, Dexter, Manchester and Stockbridge.
  • Who is teaching the workshops? Jerzy Drozd is a professional cartoonist, author of several comic books, and a teaching artist. He is also the author of the CPTN SRSLY comic books.
  • Do I need any supplies? For the first few weeks, you will just need a pencil and paper. You will also need a device to connect to Zoom (such as a computer, laptop, phone, or tablet). We will be sending you some additional supplies that you will use in the later weeks of the workshop.
  • I see this is being sponsored by SRSLY, so will my comic have to be about preventing youth drug and alcohol use? No, you will be allowed to draw comics about whatever you want! (as long as it is school appropriate, of course).
