Intro to Comics

Ever think about making comic books? Well then look no further than my Intro to Comics Class! In this 12-week comic art class, I’ll teach you the basics to get you started creating characters, putting those characters into panels and then finishing those pages with inking and color techniques. Join my Intro to Comics Class and learn the techniques to bring your amazing comic book stories to life!

Comics & The World

Comics arts are a powerful means of creating art and communicating about our lives. Students will pull from their lives and experiences, as well as their imaginations and own ideas; they will be encouraged to “jump in” to the details of that world, learning and communicating simultaneously! Guest lectures from comics as well as specific areas of interest will be a highlight!
