Sequential Artists Workshop Upcoming Events

SAWDreams, Visions and Inspirations:  A week-long intensive with John Porcellino

WHEN: Feb. 25-March 1, 10a.m. to 5 p.m. each day

WHERE: The Sequential Artists Workshop (18 S.E. 5th Ave. behind the Civic Media Center)

Last year at SAW we inaugurated our intensive visiting artist program with King-Cat creator John Porcellino. This year we’re bringing John back.

John Porcellino has been creating and self-publishing personal, powerful, poetic comics for more than 20 years. King-Cat is often on best-of lists, and he is a favorite of such artists as Chris Ware and Lynda Barry.

Students came from Australia, Seattle, New Jersey, North Carolina and elsewhere to study with John. They worked with him exploring their own memories and lives to create stories for mini-comics.

We’re proud to bring King-Cat’s John Porcellino back to SAW for this week-long workshop. Students will work with John from morning to evening creating work that they will then collect and publish on Friday. They will learn how John plans and works, looking to his sketches and notes for ideas and to vast stores of culture, nature and art for inspiration.

Ron Rege Cartoon Utopia Workshop

WHEN: Spring Break, March 4-8

WHERE: The Sequential Artists Workshop (18 S.E. 5th Ave. behind the Civic Media Center)

Ron Rege has spent four years on his new book, Cartoon Utopia, which is utterly original and beautiful.

In this week-long workshop, students will work with Ron from morning to evening, expanding their minds and vision and translating their ideas and stories to the finished page. Ron has created autobiography, true stories, comics from dreams and histories and lately, intricate spectacles and essays on magic and the unknown. Students will get to work with Ron for a week, to learn his process and connect to the Cartoon Utopia!

This workshop will be in conjunction with an exhibit at FLA Gallery on Main Street.
