John Muir Laws Wild Wonder Natural Journaling Conference, June 24,

TITLE: Telling Your Science Stories Visually 

DESCRIPTION: What good are comics? Turns out they're really excellent for learning (input) AND communicating (OUTPUT). In this workshop, you'll find out why.  We'll examine science comics to demystify how they're made and experiment with stick figures, lettering, and formats. Suitable (and proven) for any age and ability. 

8:30 - 10 PDT
