Join us for the 2018 Kids Reading Across Rhode Island The First Rule of Punk
summer workshops with The Providence Comics Consortium!
ABOUT PROVIDENCE COMICS CONSORTIUM
The Providence Comics Consortium started in 2010 as a series of comics workshops at the Providence Community Library, with a special emphasis on publishing diy books that would be available for check out through the library system. Since then the PCC’s horde of adult and kid artists have created countless workshops, comic books, magazines, a novel, a book of short stories, and have even manifested experimental parades and pneumatic tube fueled advice booths. Most recently the Consortium published a book of their time-tested drawing games: The Giant Book of Visionary Sketchbook Games.
In this one day Providence Comics Consortium program, kids will submerge into visionary sketchbook games, character creation, and pencilling & inking pages for a comic-zine that they get to take home!
