Blue Hill Library: Manga workshop

Blue Hill -

BLUE HILL – The Blue Hill Public Library will be sponsoring a weekly Manga drawing workshop series for teens from 3-4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 5 and meeting each week through Oct. 26. Local artist, Magnus Johnstone will instruct students on the elements of Manga, a term referring to Japanese comics.

Students will be introduced to the styles of Hokusai, an artist whose work was considered early manga and those of contemporary Japanese comic book artists. The finished work will be a manga book, the sum of all the participants’ contributions.

Space is limited and registration is required. Participants may sign up using the interactive calendar on the Library’s web site at www.bhpl.net or call the Library. Thanks to Friends of the Blue Hill Public Library this workshop is free and all materials will be provided. For more information call Pat at 374-5515.
