How To Read Nancy heads to Toronto.
All events are free and open to the public!
Join cartoonists (and educators) Paul Karasik and Mark Newgarden as they examine the elements of comics through the lens of the comic strip Nancy. Through the deconstruction of a single comic strip from 1959, participants will learn about the secret ingredients of visual literacy, and bolster their understanding of how to make, teach, and enjoy the medium of comics!
