Create Your Story Comic Night

Tuesdays, March 24, and 31
(postponed until further notice)
4:00 – 5:00 pm

Do you (or did you) drive teachers crazy with your wild imagination and doodles along side of your homework? Love to draw? Or tell stories? People have always told stories with pictures. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. Comics combine the best of both worlds. But what exactly is a comic ? Is it a strip in a newspaper, something you watch on TV, or perhaps a book you read. Find out the answers to these questions as you write your own comic with us! Join us Tuesday nights in March at 4:00 p.m. Every night will focus on a different aspect of comics and will add onto what was learned previously. Ages: 6 -12 

Kandiyohi 4-H and the Willmar Public Library are partnering to present this program
