Comic Book Workshops

Comic book workshops for kids!

"LET'S MAKE COMICS!" One-day workshops come to Pico Park!

I'll be teaching a series of one-day Saturday workshops this October and November in Pico Rivera, CA. Each workshop is a 2 hour class where kids are instructed in creating characters and producing their own comic book. They'll even create a cover for their particular story. All supplies are provided.

You must register your child before the start of each class. Each class meets for only one day and doesn't continue to the following week. But the child may take the class as many times as they'd like.

Place: Pico Park, 9528 Beverly Blvd.
Phone: 562-801-4470
Ages: 8 - 12
Day & time: Sat, 10:00AM - 12:00PM
Fee: $27 per workshop
Dates: 10/18, 10/25, 11/8 & 11/15

Educators and Librarians, I can teach comic book workshops at your locations. Read about my experiences here:

Since 2003, I have been teaching Comic Book Workshops throughout the Los Angeles area. For the
last several years I've
been teaching comics
at A Place Called Home in South Central Los Angeles.


Over the years, I've also given talks and lessons in comic book creation at South El Monte Library and El Monte Library (El Monte), Lamada Park Library and Pasadena Public Library (Pasadena), Countryside Preparatory School (Northridge), Buena Vista Branch Library (Burbank), North Ranchito Elementary (Pico Rivera) and Daniel Phelan Elementary & GEEKS Comics (Whittier).

My programs are aimed for students between 8-18, but other ages can be accommodated. My programs can be divided up into multiple classes over several weeks, or one-time workshops ranging from 45 minutes to 1 & 1/2 hour. I can work with you regarding the structure of the class to fit your requirements.

The focus of my teaching is the storytelling aspects of comics, using words and pictures to tell a story. The art skills aren't the priority, because every student will have varying levels of skills. But if they want to tell a story, I'll guide them through the process of creating characters, story structure and the unique tools available to someone using comics as their storytelling platform.

Please contact me to discuss your needs, my fees and any other questions you may have.

Thank you,
