Manga Workshop with Ivan Velez
This program is held in person. Join staff of the Pelham Bay Library and Ivan Velez in a manga workshop focusing on Japanese and American style comics, the students learn the history and nuts and bolts of this very popular form of comics, and make connections to their own experiences and cultures as they create their own characters for their own comics. They pick a genre, a target audience and a theme, and first create CHIBIs (child like characters with large heads and little bodies)… then move on to designing themselves as a Manga star! This is usually followed by a short Quiz contest where they answer manga related questions for prizes. Registration not required. For teens 12 – 18.
