How the West Was Drawn!
Sacramento History Museum
Comics are as old as recorded history, and a surprisingly
big part of the Old West. Join the Sacramento History
Museum and Eben Burgoon this summer for How the West Was
Drawn! – A hands-on, visual storytelling workshop tracing
the lineage from the 1800s dime novel to the graphic
novel of today.
How the West Was Drawn! comprises five Saturday sessions in July and August, each broken up into 30 minutes of lecture time and 30 minutes of hands-on activity. The Sacramento History Museum is proud to host the workshops, which also give you the opportunity to explore the rich illustration in our newest exhibit, California in Print.
