STEMworks to Teach Illustrator Through Comic Book Design
Maui’s middle and high school students have a chance to grab a spot at a free STEMworks Adobe CS6 Illustrator Workshop set for July 11 and 12, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Maui Research & Technology Park, in Ste. 5 of the Malcolm Center.
Registration is now open for the two-day software camp. Students are encouraged to sign up early; seats are limited.
Nathalie Nunez, digital media arts instructor from Dirt Gypsy Designs will be using the fun, engaging framework of comic book design to guide students through the multifaceted world of Illustrator, Adobe’s industry-standard vector drawing program.
By applying Illustrator’s powerful drawing tools, students will be able to deconstruct, plan and execute their own comic book storyboards, creating different characters and landscapes.
No experience is necessary. Registration is free. Laptops and lunch will be provided.
Students can register online.
Adobe CS6 Illustrator Workshop is part of the STEMworks series of Summer Software Camps presented by Maui Economic Development Board’s Women in Technology Project, in partnership with the Office of Naval Research, Hawaii State Department of Education.
2016 STEMworks summer offerings also include STEMworks AFTERschool workshops at Maui Waena Intermediate. The upcoming four-day AFTERschool workshop in July will be focused on advanced editing techniques.
Misha Tenebaum, founder of Editstock.com, will help elevate the editing skills of Maui Waena students through exercises that promote collaboration and constructive criticism.
