Summer academy registration is now open
Register for the Camp

In this camp, you’ll work on developing your drawing techniques, and learn how to create characters, layout a page, and develop a basic storyline. You’ll participate in guided activities and fun drawing games, designed to advance your technical skills and show you how fun art can be. Time will be spent each day on a final project of your own design, which will be scanned and published electronically in the Annual SAUGA Comic Book Anthology. Everyone works at their own pace, so both beginning and intermediate students are welcome. Most students attend this camp for several years before moving on to the advanced camp.
