Join us for our next Engage & Innovate Workshop on Tuesday, October 16th at 6:00-7:00PM in our cafeteria.  Mr. Chris Koanui, a local comic book artist, colorist, and creator of the Nightmarcher comic book, will share with our students how he draws comic book characters and will share some drawing tips with our students.

No prior character drawing experience is required, just an open mind and a willingness to learn and to use your imagination.  Developing visual arts skills is one way our students can become better communicators.
