Eventbrite - The Center for Cartoon Studies 2015 Summer Workshops

Do you have the beginnings of a graphic novel but need some help getting it off the ground? Is your cartooning stuck in a rut, ready to move up to another level?

Put everything else aside and only work on your comics for a week in White River Junction, Vermont. Workshop instructor Paul Karasik is a cartoonist (The New YorkerCity of Glass), a comics scholar (I Shall Destroy All The Civilized PlanetsHow To Read Nancy), and a renowned teacher who really knows how to take good cartoonists and make them better.

“If you ever had any interest in taking a comics class, I recommend THIS ONE. Paul is probably one of the most insightful and all around influential and amazing teachers I’ve ever had…I give this class ten thumbs up, if I only had thumbs for each finger.” – Heather Benjamin, Cartoonist
