Graphic Memoir

We’ll explore telling stories from our own lives in this class as we make a wide range of autobiographical comics. A typical class will include a mix of drawing instruction, writing prompts, and close reads of works by graphic novelists like Lynda Barry, Lat, Adrian Tomine, and John Porcellino. The last session will include a private reading, with everyone presenting a piece of their choice that resulted from the lessons. No special prior drawing experience required.
