COMICS FOR GROWNUPS (Virtual)
July 8-August 26 (8 weeks)
This class will take students on a guided tour of some basic elements of comics – from character design and figure drawing to storyboarding, text, motion, layout and timing. Students will engage in playful warmup exercises to generate ideas and stretch their creative muscles, learn about the process of comics-making from idea to execution (and how they might fit this process to their own purposes) and practice the skills introduced in class in short comics assignments designed to work for students of any skill level. Whether comedic or dramatic, fictional or true-to-life, poetic or action-driven, the aim of this class is for students to learn the skills to tell their stories, their way.
