Make Comics 
The Make Lab will be travelling to several branches during Teen Read Week (October 16-22) to make digital comics. We will be using Comic Life software, digital cameras, and digital drawing pens. Comic Life software allows you to arrange your digital images (pictures or drawings) with pre-made or customizable layouts, apply filters, add speech bubbles and add text effects. If you create on paper we can use the scanner or cameras to digitize your drawings. If you are more interested in creating a story than art you can check out some free web based tools for creating comics using pre-drawn characters, props, and backgrounds.

Check out this comic created by the teens at the Teen Outpost (click each for full size):

Email if you have questions about the Make Lab or the Make Comics program.
