Comics and Graphic Novels

Culminating in a final project of your own choosing, this class will prepare you with the skills needed to create compelling visual stories. You will further develop your drawing abilities by experimenting with line and technique, and will gain the tools necessary to create and think critically about time-based sequential work. For inspiration, we'll delve into comic theory and autobiographical approaches of contemporaries working in the field.

"I like that the instructors encouraged us to explore our own ways of art making rather than sticking to a single medium, style, or topic. It was really interesting to see the wide variety of work between students and it was clear that there was a lot of exploration involved." – Comics and Graphic Novels student
