Pentangle Arts invites middle and high school students to partake in our new program with the Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS). During this four-week residency students will be mentored by a CCS student/artist. The CCS artist will guide students through the graphic creative process as they create their own graphic novel or comic. Students will develop their own storyboards and take a field trip to the cartoon school to work in the school’s studios and store facilities.

The residency will culminate with a showcase of students’ final works alongside the work of the mentoring CCS Artist.  

When: March 2019
Where: Woodstock Town Hall Theatre/Center for Cartoon Studies
Cost: Registration opens in January 2019.
Grades: 7 -12
