Authors, Assemble: Comics & Superheroes

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s young authors and artists creating original superhero comics! In this week of camp, students will read graphic novels with superhuman attention to detail, develop an origin story and first adventure for an original hero, and draft their own action-packed tale. 

As we storyboard superpowers and secret lairs, we’ll explore how to tell stories in words and images, one panel at a time. At the end of the week, students will have original artwork and plot lines to share about an invented hero…or villain!

About 826NYC Day Camp

In 826NYC’s day camp, we bring the joy and excitement of storytelling off the page.  Each week, we pair a fun writing theme with hands-on art and learning activities, matching performances with playwriting, comics with superhero stories, and science fiction with circuit-building.

This day camp will include trips to neighborhood parks and playgrounds multiple times per week. Camp hours are 9:00-3:00, Monday-Friday.

Questions? Email or call 718-499-9884.
