This class is perfect for students who love storytelling and art. Students will learn the fundamentals of sequential art (comics, graphic novels, and manga) and explore techniques for character and word creation as they develop their own unique style of drawing and narration. Doodling, a largely misunderstood activity which recent studies suggest may have signifcant cognitive benefts, will be emphasized as a fun tool for the creative process. Students will share each others’ characters and ideas through group activities, and will collaborate on a printed comic art zine. Extra copies will be available for friends and family!
