Winter Comics Classes!

Posted by: Andrew on: November 23, 2014

We’re excited to announce our next session of comics classes at Little Island, which will start in January!

Instructor Megan Kearney will be back, leading students through the steps of comics-creation, from character design to page layouts. Students will learn techniques like pencilling and inking, and they’ll be introduced to screen tones and working with art markers.

This semester, we’re also going to be focusing on completing a comic story in the view to eventually creating an anthology of the kids’ work!

Classes are targeted at 10- to 14-year-olds, but we do accept younger kids! (Contact us for details.)

Dates and payment info:
Classes will be Monday nights, 5:00pm – 6:30pm, and the course fee will be $199 (tax incl.) for 8 weeks of classes, as set out below:

Winter session:
Jan 5th
Jan 12th
Jan 19th
Jan 26th
Feb 2nd
Feb 9th
Feb 16th
Feb 23rd

Payment options include cash payment on the first day of classes or cheque made out to Megan Kearney. You can also pay by Visa, Mastercard or Debit, but a 3% service charge will apply.

You can bring your favourite pencils and art supplies with you, or you can buy a kit from Megan with everything you need, on the first day of classes. The approximate age range for this set of classes will be 10-13 years of age, but we do accept younger students who have the interest and focus to follow (and enjoy!) the class.

Registration is open: you can call us at 416-901-7489 to sign up, or just email
