Xscape Into Comix! (Virtual on Zoom)

August 5 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

- Free

The Children’s Department at the Concord Free Public Library will offer a free character-based comics workshop for children and teens with cartoonist LJ-Baptiste on Thursday, August 5 at 4pm.

We’ll work out and break down effective, fun animal design and how we can develop and make stories with the creatures we create! If you love cartoons, animation, or story in general, this is the workshop for you! The workshop will be held virtually on Zoom. The program is recommended for children ages 8 – 12 years old.

LJ-Baptiste is an art educator and cartoonist from Boston. He has collaborated with media giants such as Google, Hasbro, and PBS to produce essential works of art. He is best known for his ongoing comic book series, COMIXSCAPE, which features the adventures of a bright-eyed, perpetually preteen boy and his raccoon sidekick. Whether it’s work in animation, graphic apparel designs, or COMIXSCAPE, LJ’s art can be described as distinctive, masterful, and captivating. When it comes to visual communication, LJ prioritizes authenticity, details, and positive messages.
