Strike a pose with MPL's Comics Club

The kids of our Comics Club practice their craft by sketching one another.
Our Comics Club got both sketching and modeling practice at our last meeting.

Artists of all kinds, including comic artists, often use live models to create realistic pictures, paintings and sculptures of people. So some of our Comics Club members volunteered to pose while their friends sketched them.

Our Comics Club is for any 8- through 12-year-old who likes to read, talk about or draw sequential art. (And it's not just for superhero fans either. We love everything from Amelia Rules to Batman to Bone.)

Our Comic Club meets from 7 to 8 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month at our Main Branch.

At a typical meeting, the kids talk about a special theme. Then we introduce the kids to graphic novels and comics that can be found in the library’s collection.

Our next meeting is Feb. 2 at our Main Branch. The theme is autobiographical graphic novels. The kids will draw their own stories like Smile by Raine Telgemeier and El Deafo by C.C. Bell.

We close out each meeting with free time for the kids to draw or read.

Kids can sign up for our Comics Club online or by calling Mentor Public Library at 440-255-8811 ext. 221.
