Comic Book Class For Teens At Falmouth Public Library

A Storyboarding Workshop for ages 13 to 18 will be held at the Falmouth Public Library on Monday, July 21, from 3:30 to 4:45 PM, taught by Andy and Veronica Fish. 

Storyboarding is a step in translating the “action” of a script into visual form. Storyboards work like the panels of a comic book to convey elements, such as camera angle and character placement, that bring a film or animation to life.

Andy Fish is a comic book artist, writer, painter, pop culture archaeologist, and film historian who studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and the Rhode Island School of Design.  He currently teaches youth and adult art programs at the Higgins Education Wing of the Worcester Art Museum, as well as at Emerson College in Boston.  He is the author of four how-to art books and six graphic novels.

Veronica Fish was educated at the School of Visual Arts in New York and the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. She works as a freelance illustrator and designer. Her work has been featured in many publications and gallery shows in Massachusetts, New York and Los Angeles.  In 2008 she and her Mr. Fish launched RoboPicto.com, an online store featuring Japanese toys and art supplies.

Mr. and Ms. Fish last visited the Falmouth Public Library two summers ago to lead a teen workshop on manga-style drawing. Participants learned the basics of this Japanese comic style.  Now they’re back with another program for teens. This workshop is free, thanks to the support from the Trustees of the Falmouth Public Library.
