COMIC JAM WORKSHOP DETAILS & PRICING

Thank you for being interested in my workshop!

Here are the details: Ira Marcks hosts a workshop powered by creativity and collaboration. Classrooms will work with Ira as he leads them through the steps of creating a comic. Along the way he will share his work and experience as an artist and storyteller while giving students a better understanding of the power of comics!

All students will create a finished, single page comic strip as they work through ideas together, develop critical thinking skills and gain a better sense of storytelling clarity.

Total engagement time to finish: 3hrs with each classroom involved.

Artist Fee* - $800, Materials Fee - $50, Mileage - 0.575/mile (from downtown 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.
