Mechanics Hall

Join New York Times Bestselling Author Jarrett J. Krosoczka as he runs a cartooning workshop for elementary-school-aged artists. Jarrett will be giving drawing demonstrations and walking young artists through the steps he takes to create graphic novels via a multimedia presentation. Bring a sketch pad and pencil to follow along as Jarrett goes over some details about how to draw and tell stories with cartoons.

And in the spirit of Comic-Con and cosplay, come dressed up as your favorite Star Wars character!

Children under the age of 17 music be accompanied by an adult. All attendees must have a ticket to gain entry.


About Jarrett J. Krosoczka:

Award winning, NYT best-selling author and artist, and Worcester native Jarrett J. Krosoczka is coming to Mechanics Hall for a two-day engagement for kids and families that will include a cartoon art workshop, a matinée dramatic presentation for his Hey, Kiddo graphic memoir, and a program of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders centered on his 9-volume Lunch Lady graphic novel detective series!

Jarrett’s message is universal: the arts lift us up. Jarrett’s art and creative muses changed the direction of his life. Making art or music, writing fiction or poetry, drawing, singing, dancing - these creative endeavors are important catalysts of well-being.
