NOTE: Our SUMMER PROGRAM for CHILDREN is canceled, along with all SPRING In-House classes.
Graphic Narrative 1S20 CANCELED
Explore the boundaries of sequential art, creating original stories for comic strips, comic books, graphic novels and other forms of graphic narrative. Learn to use your personal style to its best effect. Emphasis will be placed on the way we communicate with sequential image narratives, not on how to draw characters. Explore the grammar, iconography, symbolism and pictograms used by masters of the medium, and move through the entire process of sequential art storytelling from inception to print. We recommend you take Drawing for Comics & Cartoons first, although it is not required. Limit 8 students
