In this course on comics and visual narratives, we'll look at examples from masters of comics and cartoons while exploring different aspects of the medium through a variety of exercises and assignments. Each student will generate multiple short pieces from which we’ll assemble a photocopied class anthology at the end of the class. For this class, drawing ability is not as important as the desire to communicate your ideas clearly.

Time: 3:00 to 4:30pm
Duration: 5 weeks
Ages: 8 to 11
