SVSU Students Teach Kids to Draw Comics

A group of Saginaw Valley State University students, the SVSU Comic Strippers, will conduct two free workshops on drawing comics for youth ages 8-16.

The first workshop will take place Saturday, March 14 at 11 a.m. at Zauel Library, 3100 N. Center Road in Saginaw Township.  The second workshop is Saturday, April 25 at 11 a.m. at Butman Fish Library, 1716 Hancock Street in Saginaw.  

The SVSU Comic Strippers has been a registered student organization since 2009, dedicated to advancement and appreciation of their comic artwork, sharing resources and development of their skills. This year's club officers are James Hansen, Jolyn Ohlendorf and Neil Richardson.

The Comic Strippers club has taught successful workshops in 2012 and 2013 at Zauel Library. In the past they have taught skills in layout and design, Japanese-style manga characters, realistic human faces, and tentacle-faced monsters.
