We’re super excited to bring the genius Ron Rege Jr to SAW to teach a week-long workshop. Ron has spent four years on his new book, Cartoon Utopia, which is utterly original and beautiful.

In this week-long workshop, students will work with Ron from morning to evening, expanding their minds and vision and translating their ideas and stories to the finished page. Rege has created autobiography, true stories, comics from dreams and histories and lately, intricate spectacles and essays on magic and the unknown. Students will get to work with Rege for a week, to learn his process and connect to the Cartoon Utopia!

We’re honored to bring him to SAW.

Important information about HOUSING:

Price does not include housing.

We will make every effort to house the participants in informal and empty rooms in friendly houses in the Gainesville area. If there is a charge, it will fall on the student. We will make every effort to keep this under $50 for the week. Most houses will be walking distance from SAW, but some may need bikes. We will try to accomdate this too. We know lots of people with space, and will post more info as soon as we know, and email all participants personally with assistance in finding places to stay.

For those interested, we also recommend the Gainesville Zen Hostel, here.
