Here is a presentation of the event:
At the International School of Comics there’s something bubbling and brewing,
all little ghouls and goblins, come, stop what you are doing!
Did you see the friendly witch sail across the moon in the dark night,
riding so high with her pointed hat, striped socks, and cat who’s scared of heights?
Laughing pumpkins, smoking cauldrons,
tricks and treats for sticky sweets.
Come closer dears and lend us your ears,
for this potion calls for those with no fears!
We’ll start with a classroom and a hefty pour of fun,
a dash of imagination, art supplies, but no we’re not done!
One brilliant instructor by the name of Jill Thomspon,
is what we will need to finish this concoction.
We’ll learn how to design a creature from the depths of our minds,
put it on paper, and create one-of-a-kinds!
After the class has ended there will be fun for the adults,
A wine and cheese gallery opening with entertaining results!
So, please join us, this October 26th,
for a one of a kind Halloween workshop and gallery show that can not be missed!
