Class size limit: 12

In this workshop we will explore and practice elements of story-telling in comics, with a focus on autobiography and fiction.

We will create original work through writing exercises and guided cartooning assignments, and discuss work in a supportive atmosphere to highlight each artist’s strengths.

Students will

  • learn the techniques, tools, and theory behind successful graphic narrative
  • learn essential organizational techniques for the creation of short and long-form comics and
  • be peppered with digressions, Ponyo, and professional practices tips along the way.

Students will come away with

  • many drawings,
  • some new characters,
  • a deeper relationship with characters from their lives,
  • a mini-community of cartoonists, and
  • a week of daily drawing exercises and practices that can be used for the Rest Of Their Lives.

This class is appropriate for both beginners and more advanced cartoonists. No drawing experience is required, just a willingness to draw.
