Send your middle-aged (what? middle grade? hmmm) student to Weston Public Library on Friday, March 10 from 3:30-5:30 pm for a special graphic novel workshop with Jonathan Todd who is the author/illustrator of Timid, a forthcoming middle-grade graphic novel. He is also the co-founder of the Boston Kids Comics Fest: and has a passion for teaching children how to write and draw their own comics.

Jonathan will explain the elements of a story, panel planning/creating thumbnail sketches, penciling and inking a graphic novel, and he coaches students through creating their own graphic novel page.

This workshop is geared for kids in grades 4 – 9. And if you all recall, Friday, March 10 is a Teacher In-Service Day and Weston Public School kids are absolutely free from their regularly-scheduled school day. So you can either let them completely muck up your house and bounce off the walls…or send them over to the Library to learn a new skill or hone one they may already be working on. This unique workshop is the first step towards creating their own graphic novel!

Registration is required and can be accomplished here.

Check out the other two workshops in this series–Cartoon Drawing and Inking on March 27th and Making Autobiographical Comics on May 3rd. Sign up for one or two or all three.

The Weston Public Library is located at 87 School Street but its awesomeness can be felt far and wide.
