Co-teaching comics workshops, contributing artist, book production, grant writing, and special projects.
The Providence Comics Consortium (PCC) is a micro-publishing and education project founded in 2010 in partnership with the Providence Community Library. The PCC is inclusive of all skill levels and learning styles and respects kids as cultural producers. PCC’s horde of adult and kid artists have created countless workshops, comic books, magazines, a novel, a book of short stories, and have even manifested experimental parades and pneumatic tube fueled advice booths. Most recently the Consortium published a book of their time-tested drawing games: The Giant Book of Visionary Sketchbook Games.
Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources, including improv theater and creative writing workshops, the PCC has developed a curriculum that is unique from traditional school and art classes with its emphasis on collaborative mind bending creativity and story-telling.
