The Art of Comics
A program that explores the artform of sequential narratives and the effects of juxtaposing words with images. Week to week, students will explore the variety of comics and craft their own interpretations of each genre from single panel comics and comic strips to serial comics and graphic novels.
Cosplay – a short form for costume play – is an activity and performance art where folks wear costumes or accessories that are representative of a specific character. At the MacPhee Centre, we take this a step further by collaborating with industry professionals so that youth can learn techniques in sewing, casting, and constructing their beloved characters.
Dungeons & Dragons (D&D)
This classic tabletop, roll-playing-game (RPG) has become a crowd favourite at the MacPhee Centre. Dive into a collective fantasy world filled with character creation, adventure, and mystery as your Dungeon Master leads your campaign through a quest! Whether it is battling a gelatinous cube, a drider, or your very own homebrewed monster – there's no way of knowing what will happen in D&D!
If you are a fan of Dungeons & Dragons, and have wanted to piece together your very own campaign, this is a program where you are given the opportunity to learn how to build a world that you can lead a group through.
