Comics and Sequential Art

InstructorMeagan Ciongoli
Description: Whether you already make weekly updates on your own webcomic, or if simply turning the pages of a graphic novel has you dreaming of making your own: this class is for you. Comics and Illustration will provide an introduction to the language of sequential storytelling, with a strong focus on layouts, composition and illustration. Assignments will target specific facets of making comics in order to expand each artist’s tool belt. Using the history of the art form as a touchstone, everything from scripting and lettering for speech balloons to movement and character design will be covered. Classes will alternate between guided drawing time, and interactive critiques. Students are welcome to use most any range of mediums they are comfortable with in the class–traditional and digital alike–so come, make some comics!
