Great comics aren't based on how well you can draw but on how well you can communicate in pictures. Work on producing a minicomic over the length of the course as we cover the basic building blocks of comics, from creating characters to writing stories for them. Tools and techniques will also be covered. Read and discuss a selection of comics in the beginning of each class and focus on aspects of comics and students' projects for the remainder. For students age 18 and older.

Notes:

Please bring: Large spiral bound unlined sketchbook (9x12 or 12x14), #2 pencils; rubber, plastic, or gum eraser; and some of your comics if you have them.
Fee: $99.00
