Drawing for Comics & Cartoons

Drawing Cartoons and Comics

Hone your drawing skills and advance your personal style. With tools and tricks used by cartoonists and illustrators, create memorable characters: humorous, heroic and anything in between. Set a scene, create drama and deliver a punchline in a single image or sequentially. Get the most out of your pencil sketches, then finish them off with ink and markers. All levels welcome.

After this class, take your skills one step further with Drawing for Comics & Cartoons II. When that class is not offered, consider Graphic Narrative: Telling Stories Through Comics.
