Autobiographical Comic Making - age - 15 + (Intermediate Level)
Date: January 22 - February 19, 2018 (Mondays, 5 weeks)
Time: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Instructor: Alison Uhma

The Autobiographical Comic Making class focuses on the development of an autobiographical narrative by transferring your story to page in both word and image. Sharing stories in this manner is a popular and important form of personal expression and art making. A lending and resource library is made available to all attendees. Previous experience with drawing is helpful but not necessary.

Alison Uhma is an illustrator and comic book maker living in CB. Born in the village of Neil's Harbour, she travelled through the US and Canada playing tennis in her youth. Today she creates illustrations and sequential art both whimsical and cerebral in a shared artist space in the historic North End of Sydney. In her downtime she enjoys reading, rug hooking, and canoeing with her family.www.alisonuhma.com
