Class description:

Experience the excitement of writing and publishing a graphic novel! In this class, we will digitally publish a collective graphic novel. The main theme will be “Voyage,” a term that can be taken literally or figuratively. Students may select any type of visual narrative: comics, memoirs, travel diaries, children stories, science-fiction epics, super-hero adventures, etc. Each student will develop a three to five page story, applying the fundamentals of storytelling such as storyboarding, thumbnailing, character design, picture composition, camera angles and shots, page layouts, etc. We will also learn to organize our collection of individual stories into a cohesive digital graphic novel. Topics covered will include book layout, cover design, title page, preface, barcodes and isbn numbers, copyrights, etc. The graphic novel will be designed with a simple and convenient iPad app that can generate two types of digital publication files: a PDF and an ePub. Students can use traditional or digital tools. This is a great class for art beginners as well as experienced artists.

L’utilisation de la bande dessinée dans l’enseignement de la culture et de la littérature française

Comics as Teaching Tool for French Language and Culture.

Danièle Archambault, Ph.D. (Linguistics), a researcher, author, and educator will discuss how comics provide an important window into culture and language through their form, allowing for the combination of images of everyday life with colloquial language. She will talk about her collaboration on a series of educational projects, focusing on using comics as teaching tools in French classes, by allowing students not only to read but also to create visual narratives. Danièle Archambault is the author of three graphic novel series: Stairway stories, Québec-California, and A Year Without a Drink. Originally from Montréal, she now lives in Palo Alto, where she is artist-in-residence.

Histoires d’escaliers. Balcons et personnages.

Histoires d’escaliers. Escaliers, balcons et personnages.

Un décor familier fait d’escaliers et de balcons, des personnages que l’on connaît bien, mais de toutes nouvelles histoires. Des histoires d’hiver. Des histoires qui racontent les tristesses et les joies de la vie d’un groupe d’enfants de Montréal dans les années 1950.

D’abord le cousin Michel:
