Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) will be hosting free classes for cartooning and constructing graphic novels with local artist Leila Cabib. There will be five-session classes beginning the weekend of April 22, according to a press release.
The classes are divided in two sections. The first section is for cartooning if you are 50 years or older and will be held virtually. The second section is in-person for those between the ages of 10 and 15 years old who want to learn about graphic novels.
Cabib has created two nationally syndicated comic strips, as stated on her website. Plus, she currently teaches in Maryland schools.
Those who register for the class will have the option of borrowing art supplies. Lended supplies must be returned after the last session. These supplies can be picked up from Wheaton Library for the virtual classes, according to the registration website.
Masks must be worn to Wheaton Library for in-person sessions, located at 11702 Georgia Avenue, according to the registration.
The first virtual workshop for cartooning will be on April 22 at 10 a.m.. The graphic novel session will begin April 23 at 10:30 a.m. at Wheaton Library.
