South Kingstown Public Library Teens

What’s Happening This Week (and online drawing fun!)

We’re entering week three of the “Own the Night” Teen Summer Program! Last week, we had tons of fun making movies and learning magic…this week, it’s all about drawing:

Wednesday, July 18th, 2-3 p.m. Peace Dale Library

Are the margins of your school notebooks full of doodles? Are you going into Grade 7 and up?

Then this workshop is for you! Learn how to design and illustrate a comic book character from the ground up! Eric Fulford will guide you through the process and provide tips and techniques as you create your character, as well as your character’s unique back-story!

Space is limited, registration required! And don’t forget, every teen program you attend this summer earns you a ticket into the Own the Night Raffle Prize Drawing!

And to tide you over until then, check out these very cool online drawing superhero and manga programs!

Hero Machine Lab

Hero Machine Lab lets you use your imagination to create your ideal superhero. Create classic superhero character portraits to detailed faces to non-human monsters to animal hybrids to supernatural creatures and everything in between.
Face Your Manga

Manga more your style? Create and accessorize your manga avatars!
Draw A Stickman

Draw a stickman. Or stickgirl. Or stick…vampire. Really whatever you’d like. Then watch it come to life as you interact with storylines.
It’s pretty cool. No real drawing skill required. It’s fun. Trust me, just try it. You can thank me later.
