Zoom Webinar

In this two-week class, students examine how drawings and story come together in the art form 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. Students will work virtually through Zoom in this summer session.

Summer Class Equipment Requirements

Making 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.
