CE0928?- Making Comics and Graphic Novels: How to Tell a Visual Story
Spring 2019 - Mondays:?01/14/2019 - 04/08/2019; 6:00PM - 9:30PM
Instructor: Anne Champion
The graphic novel, an original American art form along with jazz, has returned to the literary limelight. In this course, we will read excerpts from several noteworthy graphic novels, situating each in its historical, cultural, aesthetic and theoretical context.? We will utilize Scott McCloud’s?Making Comics?as a framework to help situate your own ideas within the genre.
Emphasis in our studies will examine the co-mixing of genres within telling a visual story: we will look at journalism comics, memoir comics, realistic fiction comics, and fantasy comics.
Students will workshop and create two short graphic novels of their own (by hand or using online Web 2.0 applications and ComicLife software). The course can accommodate a wide range of drawing and artistic talent, i.e., from zero to Picasso-like prowess. Furthermore, artists with an interest in screenwriting or film may get experience with storyboarding in this course. No artistic experience is necessary to take this course.
Registration for this course is closed.
