Ancient Manga: Stories by the Foot
Chicago-based artist Molly O’Connell will lead a workshop looking at the origins of Japanese Manga comic books found in Emakimono, illustrated hand scrolls produced since the 10th century. Chōjū-giga (Scrolls of Frolicking Animals), drawn in the 12th century, is credited as the oldest work of manga. Workshop participants will use these examples as well as more contemporary works, including Osamu Tezuka, as inspiration to create stories in ink on rolls of paper. This activity is for children ages 11-14. Participation is limited.
