Comics and storyboarding share a unique connection in how to tell sequential visual stories. In this two-week class, students will discuss the history and evolution of each form and their similarities and differences. Students will learn about transferring scripts to boards and panels, gesture drawing, and page layout as they practice creating their own versions. Using film studies and techniques such as silhouette, camera angles, staging, and story, students will design their own storyboard and comic from start to finish.

Summer Class Equipment Requirements:

Storyboarding vs. Comics will be using traditional art materials for exercises and final projects. 

Students enrolled in this course will be asked to obtain the following materials before class begins: 

  1. Camera/document camera (in addition to the camera they use for Zoom)

Each student will need this in order to share their screen and present their work in class for review. If you do not have access to one of these devices, contact us so we may assist you.
