Jerel Dye Comics Class

Need help producing that comics memoir or want to create your first mini-comic from scratch? Bring your ongoing comics projects to this open form studio class.

Refine your storytelling chops, improve your drawing, learn technical skills, get your comics ready for print, and get feedback on what you are making. We will also study the masters of the medium and learn about their process.

Make that comics project a reality!

*Attend as many class sessions as you like; tuition charged based on number of sessions.

*Discount applied to registration for multiple sessions.

Registration required, but attendance not required for all sessions.


I took this class because I wanted to work on a project with the guidance of a professional comics artist.  I especially enjoyed the supportive atmosphere from the instructor, the feedback from fellow students as we all worked on our projects, and the images and books Jerel would bring in to inspire us.  I thought the class was great, and wish it was available year-round!
