This adult class will run at the Palo Alto Art Center, from Jan. 16 to March 19 2024, Tuesday nights, 6:30 to 8:30 pm.
This semester, in the Visual Storytelling class, you will be creating and publishing a collaborative graphic novel.
In this fun, relaxed and friendly class, we will focus on how to turn a story into a compelling narrative, applying the fundamentals of visual storytelling: storyboarding, thumbnailing, character design, picture composition, camera angles, layout, etc. Additional topics include narrative art techniques, book layout, cover design, promotion, and publishing. Participants collaborate to organize their individual story into a cohesive digital graphic novel followed by an exhibition in the Art Center Studio Gallery
You may use the traditional media of your choice or digital tools (you must bring your own laptop/tablet and be familiar with your equipment.)
This is a great class for beginners as well as skilled writers/illustrators. Even if you took this class before, you can participate again and get the opportunity to get another of your stories into a collaborative book and an exposition.
You can register in person at the Palo Alto Art Center, by phone (650) 329-2366 or online by following this link:
