Comics in the Clouds start date changed to April 11!

The start date for Comics in the Clouds, Cloudscape’s new comic-creating class, has been pushed back a week so it’ll be starting on the 11th of April, rather than the 4th. That means there is still time to register for it! It’s open for anyone aged 15-25, and is free to attend. Plus, all participants get to be part of an art show and print their own mini-comic. So don’t delay. Sign-up for an exciting program.

Cloudscape Edition of SNAG

snagWednesdays at the Cobalt Club is SNAG, where artists paint all night and the club raffles them off. It’s a great way to get some original artwork without losing a bundle. Cloudscape will be participating in SNAG on April 20th from 7:30 – midnight. We’ll be raising money for Bones of the Coast that night, we want everyone in Cloudscape to come if possible. See SNAG’s Facebook page for more information.

The comic was created by John K. Snyder III and this book has been edited by friend-of-Cloudscape Hope Nicholson (Nelvana of the Northern Lights, Brok Windsor).
