Words & Pictures: An Intro to Comics

Using Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics as a foundation, this class is an introduction to graphic novel storytelling. Students will learn the basics of how to construct a story using two different languages simultaneously: the written word and the visual art. Drawing experience is encouraged but not required. This class is for those who are curious about incorporating visuals into their writing. Students can expect to complete their own preliminary thumbnails, while the instructor facilitates discussion and provides insight.
