Virtual Programs

Join us for a week of discussion about demonstrations, determination, and drawing!

Representative Lewis, who passed away recently, was a leader in the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s and a powerful voice for change in his lifetime in activism and then the U.S. House of Representatives. Several years ago, he published a 3-part comic book series called “March” based on his life, which is a powerful example of the comics form.

Through Allegheny Intermediate Unit, we have the opportunity to offer a week-long class this August via Zoom for Teens. Participants in the class will read the book, learn about comics, and do some drawing themselves!

Director of STEAM Programs Kyle Glaser and Toonseum President and Media Lab Guest Instructor Marcel Walker will lead five classes from August 17th-21st from Noon to 1 pm.

Registration for this program is free and all participants will have a copy of March and drawing supplies shipped to their house.

Sign up on Allegheny Intermediate Unit’s website to join! This opportunity is intended for 9th-12th graders, but if you believe your middle schoolers might benefit, please contact Kyle Glaser at glaser@sarahheinzhouse.com

Register here to MARCH with us this August!
