Summer Camps at Scuola Internazionale di Comics gives kids ages 7 to 13, an opportunity to learn the basics in drawing, animation, cartooning, and storytelling, while also developing conversational skills in a second language – either Italian/Spanish.

The school’s kids camp staff are experienced teachers who will provide students with all day instruction, inspiration, and dedication to each individual’s talent.

The school will also offer Italian and Spanish classes during the camp’s hours, so that kids will have the opportunity to practice their drawing skills, while learning a second language.

Camp sessions will be divided into four weeks with kids learning a new skill each week.

In Week 1, kids will learn illustration basics to create their own cartoon.

During Week 2, kids will learn how to make a cartoon and bring it to life through animation.

The third week of instruction, will show kids perspective and storytelling so that they can create their own comic story.

In Week 4, children will learn  about the history of comics and learn how to develop their own super hero character.
