Can you draw a comic strip that lasts for a second?

How about an hour?

What about a year?

In this interactive 90-minute workshop, Canadian/British cartoonist and comics educator Matt Smith! ( takes a closer look at how time is shown (and manipulated) in comics!

We will examine and discuss example comics pages that play with time in interesting ways.

Participants will then draw (and share!) their own comic strips of different lengths of time!

All drawing styles and levels of experience are welcome.

Drawing materials will be provided. This workshop is recommended for ages 12+.
