This month, graphic novelist Jonathon Todd is returning to town to work with 8-12 year olds. This time, the focus is on using drawing to help them manage their emotions.

The free workshop, “Drawing on Your Superpowers”, is part of the Town’s Mental Health Awareness Month series.

The promotion explains:

“Having big emotions can be hard to manage but what if these emotions are actually superpowers? Join SYFS and comic book artist, Jonathan Todd to learn the art of reframing challenges and design a superhero that illustrates your own amazing Superpowers.”

The session will take place Tuesday, May 16 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm at the Southborough Library.

Registration is required. Click here to sign up.
