In this camp, students take their illustrations to the next level by creating their own unique comics and graphic novels. Emphasis is placed on storytelling, introducing students to character development, plot structure, scripting, and storyboarding. Skills in penciling, inking, coloring, space, and perspective are introduced through the use of a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional media, such as colored pencils, oil pastels, watercolors, digitally edited drawings, and handmade zines. Artist presentations, virtual tours of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a curated library of online comics and animation resources provide inspiration as an entry into the basics of comic narrative and stylization.
