What we're about
My name is Johwell. I am a videographer/educator currently residing in Oakland.
I realize there is no place for parents to meet with their children under the age of 12 who love to work on their own comic book.
My son is 9, finished his own graphic novel at the age of 8 and is now working on his second one.
My goal for this group is to create an environment where he is surrounded by kids his age with the same interest and ambition.
My vision is for the parents and their kids to meet once a week for two hours. The kids will share about their work, exchange ideas and criticism/advice, and work on their own project.
The requirement to join this group is to be a (18 and older) parent of a child between the age of 7 and 12 and already working on a personal project, or who is really motivated to start one. Parents will be present with the children the whole time.
I hope we can create a supportive environment for our children that will foster their creativity. Hopefully, this will also be an opportunity for us parents to share resources about classes, workshops, camps, etc. that will help our kids achieve their artistic goals.
We currently meeting in my living room. As the group grows we will look for a more convenient venue.
