Comics Camp 2003: The Orchard School

In our first camp of 2003, Comics Camp: Basics, campers explored the possibilities of telling stories with sequential pictures and words. We practiced the tricks of the trade with daily exercises and discussions, and each camper created one (or more) mini-comic book. At the end of the week, we celebrated our achievements with the Second Annual Orchard School Comics Convention, and each camper went home with a special-edition Comics Camp 2003 boxed-set containing all the comics produced that year.

We had two talented young interns for this week of camp: Nathan Paluzzi (from the Baltimore High School of the Visual Arts) and Owen Miller of Alstead.
