Join us in the Matthews Opera House and Arts Center gallery for our free artist workshops! Twice a month we will offer classes led by practicing artists in a variety of media. Each workshop is a three-hour session in which you will get hands-on experience in crafting your own masterpiece.
On Thursday, May 12, we will feature Maxwell Green, teaching the art of comics and animation. In this workshop, participants will participate in a variety of fun activities focused on both comics and animation. For comics, the focus will be on character creation strategies, storytelling, and sequencing our comics. Animation activities will build off of what was learned with comics, working towards things like flipbooks and other traditional, hands-on techniques. By the end of the session, students will have completed a short comic, flipbooks, multiple drawings from activities, and more!
Future workshops include instruction on leather-bound journals (5/26), and sewing (6/9).
These events are free, however, we always encourage a “pay as you can” donation to help offset the cost of supplies.
These workshops are a makeSPACE at the Matthews event, made possible by the South Dakota Arts Council.
Space is limited. Reserve your spot by calling the Matthews (605) 717-6967
