COMIC STRIP WORKSHOP with Mattia Polloni

Timetable & Location
Jul 13, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
TAMBÚCA House of Art, Via Cesare Battisti, 112, 55049 Viareggio LU, Italy

The event
The workshop is dedicated to all the people who want to tell something through the language of comics.
Each participant will test his creativity with practical exercises to understand how to approach the table of a comic in the most natural way possible. At the end of the day everyone will have made a small story with the tools they acquired in the previous hours and will not be afraid to go back to challenging a blank sheet to tell something!

The workshop will be divided into two parts.
- In the first one, the basic grammar of the comic will be discussed and with practical tips and exercises the first steps will be taken towards the creation of comic sequences.
- In the second part the drafting and realization of the draft of a real short story will be addressed.
