This fun, liberal arts-style class will explore the different types of comics that exist in today’s world, including how they’re formatted, critiqued, and influenced by visual- and non-visual-based artists since the 1960s.

It’s designed to teach writers, illustrators, editors, and appreciators of different backgrounds critical thinking, communication, and planning/project management skills – including how to use AI technology responsibly – while giving them the opportunity to try their hand at creating a one-page one-shot and/or the types of styles for those comics.

Dreams of starting one’s own graphic novel or webcomic are optional but encouraged.

Each week of the course will focus on theory and craft. For the art portion of the class, VisArts will provide pen and paper, and students are encouraged to bring the media of their choice if they’d like to use class time to practice illustration.

The focus of this class is on storytelling and how to put the elements of comics together from scratch, not on the materials used.

This class is for students ages 14 and up.
