How is a comic book like an icon? Both traditions use stylized, eye-catching images to guide readers through complex stories using a language unique to the medium.
Cartoonish Marek Bennett will guide you in the creation of your own iconic image (or, in comics parlance, a "Splash Page") from a favorite family story, using the visual language of icon painting AND comic book cartooning. Participants can work with family members as an intergenerational team, or each can work on their own original page. marekbennett.com
