Class Description:

Visual Storytelling: Graphic novel, Illustration and more.

Do you want to create images that tell a story? Do you have a story to tell, but want to add a visual element? This class offers a great introduction to the art of visual storytelling and its various forms: graphic novels, comics, illustration, children books, travel diaries, etc. Warm-up drawing and writing exercises, practical introduction to narrative art techniques, and exploration with a variety of media will allow students to develop their own way of telling stories with pictures. Topics covered in this 10-week class include, storyboarding and thumbailing, character design, picture composition (perspective, camera angles and shots), page layout, penciling, inking, coloring, and more. In the last classes, we will review different ways for students to share or publish their work, on paper or on line. Students can choose to work with traditional or digital tools and are welcomed to bring their laptop and graphic tablets to class. This is a great class for art beginners as well as experienced artists.

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.
