Once upon a time, we taught children through the oral tradition. Now studies prove children who actively listen to stories, expand their imaginations, becoming better thinkers, readers, and writers. Storytelling, especially by a master of the art, provides an ideal way to educate children. Tell me your story. I’ll tailor tales for your school.

Comics are one of the most powerful tools we have for sharing stories. Ira’s DRAWING COMICS program is filled with colorful visual lessons that invite students into the exciting world of comics and show them the skills needed to create comics that connect readers with their stories.

As a working comic artist, I’ve had a wide array of experiences with the art form. I’ve used comics to tell stories in fiction and non-fiction, as entertainment and educational material. I’ve self-published my own fantasy comics, created educational comics for middle schoolers in the capital region, and recently worked with the European Research Council on a comic about “the internet of things.” You can see all this work on my website: iramarcks.com
