Comics for Breakfast: Alumni Artist Talk + Comics Jam

What’s life like after art school? Join us for a conversation and live comics reading with three Mason alumni: Lee Strawberry (BFA ’19), Ash Smith (BA ’22), and Sylvia Rossi (BFA ’23)! Attendees will learn a little more about being working cartoonists and how these creators keep their practice going.

Following the discussion, Sylvia Rossi will lead a comics workshop and risograph printing demonstration.

Registration recommended, no experience needed. Snacks and supplies will be provided. Sign up here!
