From a young age, Walt Disney was interested in comics and sequential art. He drew comics for his school’s newspaper, The Voice, and since then, countless stories have been told using unique characters in situations ranging from the normal and mundane to grand adventures around the world.

In this four-week course, we will explore the history and evolution of comics, and what makes this form of visual storytelling unique and versatile. Students will delve into techniques such as gesture and silhouette, page layout, and story pacing to design their own short comic from start to finish.

This class will be held entirely online using a video conference interface. Students will be expected to have an internet connection, camera, and microphone to communicate with the teacher and other students. Basic materials such as pencils, pens, and paper will be used in class; digital means are also accepted. Please download this PDF with the full list of materials needed, including optional extras.
