SLICE: From the Bayeux Tapestry to the Comic Strip
Have you ever thought about making your own comics but didn’t know where to start? Did you ever wonder how comics were made? SLICE: From the Bayeux Tapestry to the Comic Strip answers these questions and more by taking a close look at the Colby College Museum of Art’s Roy Lichtenstein: History in the Making, 1948-1960 exhibition. Roy Lichtenstein was inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry in his early career. This famous work of art from the 11th century, also known as the Bayeux Embroidery, depicts the Norman conquest of England. It has been described as an early incarnation of the comic strip. This SLICE session will provide you with all the basics, from creating your own medieval inspired storyboards with an online platform to learning about possible careers to pursue in the art field.

SLICE (Students Learning Innovative Creative Endeavors) is a Waterville Creates program for students ages 13–19 that offers unique experiences at creative arts organizations throughout Waterville. To comply with Covid19 measures, the program will be hosted virtually on Zoom. A Zoom link will be emailed to you 24 hours before the event.
