Teen Workshops

KMAC is excited to offer two workshops for teens this summer!

Bridging the Gap:

Comic Autobiographies

Tuesday, July 19 - Friday, July 22

1-3:30 PM

Ages 12-18

 

In this workshop, participants will work with artist Joyce Barbour and learn the importance of autobiographical comics as a literary medium and how the stories they tell connect us. They will create handmade comics about their lives. This workshop is a great creative and emotional outlet, especially for those struggling with anxiety and circumstantial stress. Along with being very therapeutic, crafting your own narratives can also be a source of empowerment, because it teaches you that your stories matter and your voice deserves to be heard. This workshop is LGBTQIA+ friendly.

Joyce Barbour (She/They) is a multimedia artist and educator living in Louisville, KY. Barbour’s work often explores the therapeutic possibilities of art and the idea of creativity as a communal effort. Within her teaching practice, Joyce passes on to her students a passion for using art to tell stories and make connections.
