The revised, improved sign...

Artist Entrepreneur Boot Camp

Graphic Novels & Comics

Learn how to create art AND sell it!  Explore your creative side using a wide range of materials - from watercolor to acrylic to airbrush to collage to mixing it all up. This year's theme is graphic novels and comics - tell your story in pictures and know how to  publish your work in print and online.

Learn entrepreneurship skills using social marketing, selling online and in alternative spaces. These skills can be applied to any field - from rockin' the senior presentation to starting your own business! (even if it's not in the arts)

Completed 8th graders to age 21 who have not yet earned a high school diploma.  Students will earn .5 credit for high school.  Beginners welcome.
