FINALLY! I can tell you what I’ve been so BUSY doing for the last few months! I have been HARD AT WORK trying to figure out how to take the teaching methods I use in-person and implement them in an internet friendly package so that I can teach YOU how to start making your own comics wherever you may be! Yes, indeed!
I bring you WRITING & DRAWING COMICS: the E-Course:
Comix Course Trailer from Summer Pierre on Vimeo.
5 Weeks of lessons & instruction delivered right to your inbox starting on January 4, 2016!
Made for anybody who has been interested in trying to make comics of their own, but haven’t for whatever reason. Maybe those reasons include:
*You don’t know where to begin
*You think your drawing ability is not good enough
*Think you have to have special skills or tools just to get started
Read all about it here! Or you can go ahead and register for it here!
Here’s some sketches I did of some students I worked with last fall making an EPIC comic frame by frame. They worked SO hard and made such GREAT things. I genuinely miss everyone in that class and LOVED seeing what their brains came up with.
You TOO can work hard and make great comics!
For those who are local to the Hudson Valley, I am once again teaching my Writing and Drawing Comics Class at the Garrison Art Center. Four Saturdays starting on October 31st. It’s open to everyone ages 9 and up–space is limited so GET IT WHILE YOU CAN!
In this class we cover the basics of making comics–writing pictures and drawing words. No experience or “talent” is necessary, just a willingness to try new things. It’s fun! Come on down!
Hey Hudson Valley peeps! My comics class at the Garrison Art Center is BACK! 4 Saturdays beginning October 31st! All the info can be found here.
Here are what some people have said about the class:
I loved this class and loved Summer as a teacher! Her blend of thoughtful instruction, genuine encouragement and sense of fun empowered everyone in the class to discover and create with great freedom while gaining new skills and perspectives on art. I’m looking forward to taking more of Summer’s classes in the future. Can’t recommend them highly enough!

Simply put, Summer Pierre is a terrific teacher. When I signed up for her class, I was in the midst of learning to draw at the ripe old age of 67. (Since then I’ve turned 68.) I told her my drawing skills were rudimentary. “No problem,” she replied and it wasn’t. Her classes are well organized, the handouts are very much to-the-point and her enthusiasm and encouragement are infectious. And she doesn’t let you slack off!
