The Graphic Narrative: A class on comic books.
I’m teaching a class on comic book creation this summer at the Eliot School in Jamaica Plain, MA. The course’s emphasis is on how to tell quality stories through the unique medium of sequential art. We’ll be doing a number of small projects that teach the principles of pictograms, acting with drawings, panel layout and flow, and creating drama with images. I will also be including much of the work produced in class into a comic anthology, and be teaching some of the printing process of comic books, as we go.
The Eliot School is a great little community art school with all kinds of great classes from furniture restoration to figure drawing, in one of the oldest school houses in the area.
Anyway, if you’ve ever wanted to learn how to make your own comics and you live in the Boston area you should sign up! It’ll be fun!!!
