FINAL Comix Creation Classes for Kids in 2020!!!

Featured

The Million Year Picnic comic shop is still closed to browsing, but that doesn’t mean we’re not working! We’re doing curbside pick-ups, free local deliveries for orders over $15, and shipping all over the country! AND, our friend Jason Wiser is offering THE FINAL SET of COMIX CREATION CLASSES FOR KIDS IN 2020! After these two classes, there will be NO MORE CLASSES in 2020!

The next Level 1 course begins next Monday, 10 August 2020, from 4-5pm daily. Classes will be recorded if you miss a day! (The final Level 2 class will be the following week: August 17-21, 2020, time TBD.)

These classes run 5 days a week, 1 hour a day through a Zoom link provided by the teacher for kids age 8 and older. Students can participate through an Internet-connected laptop or tablet, and materials are typically paper, pencil, and pen. All work is optional, but kindness is mandatory!

To register, please send the $50 fee per course (per household, so 1 kid or 5 kids, it’s the same price) to the Million Year Picnic comic book store via PayPal to blanton7772000@yahoo.com (or use the PayPal button below).

IN THE PAYPAL “NOTE” FIELD, PLEASE PROVIDE:
(1). The Course Name & Date (e.g., “Comix 1” or “Comix 2” or “Both” — both = $100)
(2). Your child’s name and age
(3). An email address (to send you the daily Zoom link).

If PayPal doesn’t show you a NOTE field, please email this information to millionyearpicnic@yahoo.com!

If you have problems with PayPal or need to use a different payment method, please contact us at millionyearpicnic@yahoo.com or call 617-492-6763. Either Tony or Kelly is in the shop every day between 2pm and 6pm (sometimes earlier, sometimes later).

Note that this is a fundraiser for the shop as Jason let’s us keep the bulk of the fees! You’re helping a Black-owned business stay afloat!

If you do not see an email from us by 3:30pm of the first day of class, it might be in your spam folder. Please check, and please email Jason@YayaPlay.com with questions! Jason’s website is http://www.yayaplay.com/classes.html
