Comics and Graphic Novels Online (Ages 10-13)

Take your imagination to the next level by creating your own comics and graphic novels! Learn how to tell engaging stories and investigate character development, plot structure, scripting, and storyboarding. Explore penciling, inking, coloring, space, and perspective through the use of a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional media, which may include colored pencils, oil pastels, watercolors, and handmade zines. Virtual visits to the Art Institute of Chicago and other online resources compliment this studio course. Open to beginning students and those who want to continue developing their skills, previous drawing experience is helpful but not required.

Online courses include two hours of structured screen time plus one additional hour of activities that can be completed immediately following each class meeting or at another time during the week. For more information, visit What Does Online Learning Look Like
