Registration for this Summer Class is now closed.

In this two-week class, students examine how drawings and story come together in the artform of comics. Join us as we explore the history of comics, visual storytelling, characters, and the craft of silent comics. Students will use techniques such as gesture, silhouette, page layout, and story pacing to design their own short comic from start to finish.

This class is intended for students interested in learning the process of making comics. This class is recommended for students with very little or no experience in comics.
