Comic Book Design

We live in a comic book world. Thousands of pages upon pages of glorious illustrated narratives produced each and every month for almost one hundred years. Yet, this industry is tough to access especially without skills, capacity and a potential following to propel you to the next level. One of the simplest ways to gain that experience and establish your own voice is through Web Comics. Easy to produce, easy to develop, they provide a perfect platform to learn the industry and build your credibility. In this camp, you will learn how to create, illustrate, and promote your very own web comics! The camp will be led by Dr. Lee Francis 4 and will feature several professional comic industry guests to help you create and produce your very own works. Over the time of the camp, we will write, illustrate, upload, and promote your work and establish your Web Comic presence for the world to see!

Podcasting 101

Podcasting is one of the most recent forms of building and communicating with an audience. It can be a single presentation or an episodic series. This can be presented with video or as strictly audio. A podcast can feature one or more participants. Discussion and content within a podcast can range from carefully scripted to completely improvised. People create a podcast for a number of reasons. The podcast producer, who is often the podcast host, may wish to share a personal passion, enter into a social network of influencers or cultivate a community of like-minded viewership.As with all artforms, podcasting there is a language and vocabulary that is specific to podcasting. The purpose of this series of 6 classes is to introduce teachers and students to the language of podcasting by talking the participants through the experience of producing their own, airable, podcast.

Improv Medicine

EMERGENCE: Making sense of post pandemic interactions.

In this three-week class, we will apply improvisation skills to the shared task we all have now of emerging from this strange pandemic year. Being around others in large groups again will challenge us socially, mentally, and emotionally. In this class, we will role play what emergence might feel and look like for each of us as individuals, and collectively. The class will conclude with improvised scenes performed and facilitated by teen participants. We will hone social, emotional, and communication skills vital for this next phase in our society’s growth: that of Emergence.

Social Media Takeover

In conjunction with the filmmakers behind Netflix’s “The Social Dilemma”, this camp will guide students on a 3-week experiment to “rethink” the ways in which we use social media—and how it may potentially be using us. As campers engage with the film’s producers and learn firsthand about the social dilemma, they’ll have the opportunity to formulate social media “reboot” strategies based off of their own social media usage/experiences. The goal? To be smarter and more purposeful about the way we use social media, while empowering youth to take “take the lead” by guiding students through fun, out-of-the-box activities that work to develop their civic leadership skills.
