Learn to create a short 8-page comic in a zine format on an educational topic of your choice! Come prepared with a few facts on a specific topic that you want to convey, and we will explore ways to turn them into engaging images or narratives for your intended audience. Paper and pens will be provided, but feel free to bring your own drawing equipment. Please note that this workshop is for participants aged 16 years and above.
