Making Comics explores the basics of comics as a medium - from idea to execution guided by teaching artist Zoe Schein. Focus on both storytelling and drawing skills--develop stories and characters, build and draw figures, environments, and actions--all in support of a story. Whether comedic or dramatic, fictional or true-to-life, poetic or action-driven, participants learn the skills to tell their stories their way. This class may be repeated to continue gaining experience and skill. Projects vary each term.
