Graphic Storytelling

Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Graphic Storytelling

Course Code: ARTS2500

The graphic form of storytelling (aka comics) continues to surge in popularity. From the first Superman comic in 1938 to Gord Downie and Jeff Lemire's A Secret Path, the graphic form is a powerful genre of storytelling. Learn the basics of telling stories through a combination of words and images. Instruction will progress from a series of warm-up exercises through to idea generation, pencil thumbnails, panel placement to fully panelled and inked stories. Through critique and feedback, develop skills in this exciting medium with the goal of completing a self-contained, fully inked story. No proficiency in drawing is required, only a desire to use images and words to create compelling stories.
