Cloudscape also hosts many of our own events, most taking place at Cloudscape HQ in South Memorial Park (click here for a map). These events include:

Weekly Meetings: Cloudscape hosts weekly social gatherings on Wednesdays at 7:30 PM that are open to all adults interested in drawing comics. At these meetings both aspiring and experienced comic artists can network, exchange ideas, and work on their projects in a supportive environment. Everyone is invited! Meetings are currently alternating between online and in person.

Cloudshops: Cloudscape members occasionally hosts free to attend workshops and lessons covering various comic making topics. Keep an eye on the calendar for any upcoming events.
