SVSU students to teach kids to draw comics

A group of Saginaw Valley State University students, the SVSU Comic Strippers, will host a free workshop on drawing comics for youths, ages 7 to 17. The workshop will take place Saturday, March 18, starting at 11 a.m. at Butman-Fish Library, 1716 Hancock in Saginaw.  

The SVSU Comic Strippers has been a registered student organization since 2009, dedicated to the advancement and appreciation of comic artwork, sharing resources and development of artistic skills.

The Comic Strippers club taught workshops in previous years at Zauel Library in Saginaw Township. In the past, members taught skills in layout and design, Japanese-style manga characters, realistic human faces, and tentacle-faced monsters.

Participants are encouraged to bring their artwork to show the SVSU artists and each other. Paper and drawing pencils will be provided.
