Graphic Novels and sequential Art has become a mainstay in literary material. From Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes to Art Spiegelman’s Maus, comics are an interactive written and visual art form. In this class students will learn the foundations of Sequential Art and Comics. Students will learn to build a plot, theme, and characters, and how to draft a script. Using traditional media of pencil and paper, and later digital media, students will begin to draw each panel of their story while learning principles of design and drawing. The goal of this class is to jump start kids into a popular and creative field of art and literature. Great for students who have an active imagination and a story to tell!
