Hard to believe that it’s time to start planning for classes in 2016. Ty will be teaching his Comic Book Bootcamp class, How To Make Comics, for the person who just wants to get the basic grounding of the skills needed to go off and make their own comics, digital or print. For those who have been working on comics for a while and would like to improve some of their skills, the second class will be How To Ink Comics.
For those who have asked, Ty will not be at this year’s one day Toronto comic convention in December; we’ll be in Delhi, India for a comic convention there! We’re looking at the schedule and hope to plan a drop-in for December for Bootcampers, past and future, to stop by and say hello, and show off work and portfolios. When we’ve decided on a date, I’ll be posting that here and on Facebook.
As always, if you’re interested in any of the classes let us know as soon as possible as they do fill up quickly (even when they’re two months away!).

Just posted info on the next set of workshops. Currently, we’re waiting on an international comics convention to announce Ty as a guest so we have to keep quiet about it…but it’s the reason why there won’t be classes the first week of December. The missed week is noted in both class descriptions.
Go here to read up on UPCOMING CLASSES: OCTOBER/NOVEMBER – DECEMBER 2015.
The Thursday class for How To Write Comics is now full so the Wednesday class is now a go. It will be the exact same class, same lessons, same time, just a different day.
If you’re interested in this class, check the details here: https://comicbookbootcamp.com/upcoming-classes-september-october-2015/ and let us know as soon as possible; this class is already half-filled.
Just posted info on the classes for September and October; How To Make Comics (aka Comic Book Bootcamp) and How To Write Comics. Both of these classes fill up fairly quickly so if you’re interested, or know someone who is, please let us know as soon as possible so we can hold a spot for you (or them).
We’ve been approached about teaching classes in other locations and are giving that some consideration. At the moment though, Ty is sticking with his downtown location. Luckily, by September, the Pan Am Games and the resulting traffic snarls will be a long-distant memory!
Ty will have a table at FanExpo Canada September 3 – 6 2015. If you have any questions about classes, or would like to have your work assessed, he will be more than happy to talk to you.
As some of you may be aware, Ty Templeton suffered a heart attack last week. Although serious, he is now recovered enough to be back home. As his doctor’s advice was to start slow, Ty has decided to push back the start date to the next session. HOW TO WRITE FOR COMICS PART TWO will now start May 5, and end June 16. HOW TO MAKE COMICS will start May 7 and end June 18.
We still have spaces in the writing class but you need to have taken Part One and/or How To Make Comics (aka Comic Book Bootcamp Part One). There is no prerequisite for How To Make Comics but there are only three spaces left so let us know asap if you would like to take it.
…are now posted. The second part of HOW TO WRITE COMICS will run Thursdays, November 6 to December 18. Ty’s unique take on learning anatomy, HOW TO DRAW THE HUMAN FIGURE (FROM YOUR HEAD) will be on Tuesdays, November 4 to December 16.
Yep, it’s still summer–and there’s lots to go, no worries! But we’ve had so many people asking when Ty would be teaching his intro classes, that we decided to post ’em early. Starting September 9, Ty will be teaching HOW TO MAKE COMICS (previously known as COMIC BOOK BOOTCAMP). HOW TO WRITE COMICS (formerly known as WRITING FOR COMICS) begins on Thursday September 11.
Check the page for all relevant details and let us know as soon as possible if you’re interested in either of these classes; these two fill up very quickly.
UPCOMING CLASSES SEPTEMBER – OCTOBER 2014
With a month to go, WRITING FOR COMICS PART ONE is full. We have two spaces left for HEADS HANDS AND FACES, so let us know as soon as possible if you’re interested.
The next session of classes will start March 11, yep during March Break for grade school kids and after Toronto Comic Con 2014. Ty will be teaching WRITING FOR COMICS PART ONE on Tuesdays, and HEADS, HANDS AND FACES on Wednesdays.
Ty’s Writing class fills quite quickly–it’s so popular and so highly-praised that his last writing classes, Part One and Part Two, included a student who drove up from Rochester New York every Wednesday to take it! So if you’re interested send us an email as soon as possible in order to get in; generally, we don’t keep a waiting list.
The HEADS, HANDS AND FACES class was brand new last year–this is a class jam-packed with the instruction you need to learn to do these body parts…and to make interesting and unique faces for all your characters.
Read up on the classes here and then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Seems odd to be planning out a return to school on such a beautiful summer day in July…but we’ve had to plan out the rest of our year in order to accomodate classes, holidays, convention appearances and more.
Go HERE to read up on September’s workshops–and for the first time ever, Ty will be teaching a workshop on a weekend! Starting Sunday September 22, Ty will teach COMIC BOOK BOOTCAMP PART ONE. Check the link for details.
