Here are the details: My Comic Jam workshop is a 3hr event. I will provide all project materials and drawing supplies. You provide the workspace, tables, chairs, and artists! I can accommodate a large group of people. Once I held a Comic Jam with over 300 high schoolers! If you're hosting a community event, I know getting the word out can be tricky. With a little foresight, I bet we can catch the attention of the local media. Here are some regional news articles and a PBS short that have helped me build an audience for my workshops.
Here is a breakdown of my fees:
Artist Fee* - $400, Materials Fee - $20, Mileage - 0.54/mile (from Troy, NY)
*I understand budgets for enrichment programing can vary, and I try my best to be affordable. If my programing doesn't quite fit your budget, please get in touch. Hopefully, we can work something out. Sometimes organizations split the cost and co-host a workshop. Also, if you're looking for a workshop series beyond a single event, my fees will differ and I'm happy to chat about it!
E-mail me below and include some possible dates for our event.
Or give me a call: 207-952-2473
Looking forward to hearing from you!

A COMIC JAM works best when the artists are provided with a title to start their project. You can download a PDF of eight tried-and-true title cards help the artists to kick off the COMIC JAM!
