On April 24th, artist Walter Dickinson from the Toronto Cartoonists Workshop visited the Academy to do a workshop with students about how to create comics. Students were able to develop their own characters and learn various drawing and story creation techniques. The grade 11 English class, who has been studying the graphic novel ‘Maus’, will soon be creating their own comic memoirs as a class assignment. Thanks to Walter and the Toronto Cartoonists Workshop for this great experience!
