As it nears its third anniversary, Meltdown University is about to more than double the amount of classes offered!  In addition to our Creating Comics and Drawing Basics classes, we’re announcing two new classes and will be adding two more in just a couple of weeks.

First up is The Webcomics Workshop. The class will meet for eight weeks and will cover developing your comic idea, designing the page, marketing, and more.  It will be taught by Geoffrey Golden, who has written for National Lampoon, Warner Bros., and  Geoffrey is also the writer of the popular webcomic Leetstreet Boys, and is the Editor-In-Chief of the bold, exciting… dare I say, brash? anthology of comics and comedy called The Devastator.  The class will meet on Saturdays from 12 to 3pm and starts June 4th so sign up now!

The second is Drawing Comics For Kids. Moms, Dads, caretakers, if you’ve got kids between the ages of 7 and 10 years old, we’ve got a place for them to learn about drawing and to practice making their own comics. It will be fun and a great way for them to express their creativity and ideas.  The class will be taught by Donna Letterese, who has taught kids how to make comics for years, is a comics editor, a tutor, and a talented artist herself.  Donna’s art has appeared in juried exhibits and gallery shows all around the city.  The class will meet on Tuesdays from 4 to 6pm and starts July 5th.
