Learn the basics with artist Michael McMenemy. Enter the world of sequential art and develop your own graphic novel with memorable characters and unique settings. Michael McMenemy is a graduate of Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY, where he studied Illustration, and took a profound interest in sequential art and storytelling. He endeavors to improve as a graphic storyteller by exploring new approaches to the craft and developing innovations within the comics medium. See examples of his work in the Worcester-centric children’s book, Siegfried, the graphic novel Dirt: Green Tornado Water, and ongoing comics series Something Creepy and Pale Dragon. More at

In each workshop, Michael will guide students through each step of the process of creating a comic book, from concept to publication. Students are encouraged to attend all courses, but can also choose a single course that they would enjoy or benefit the most from.
