Enrol in Graphic Storytelling
Course Code: ARTS2500
The graphic form of storytelling (aka comics) continues to surge in popularity. From Gord Downie and Jeff Lemire's A Secret Path to Margaret Atwood and Johnnie Christmas' Angel Catbird, Sarah Glidden's Rolling Blackouts, and Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, the graphic form is a powerful and innovative 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, self-contained, and inked stories. Through critique and instructor feedback, develop skills in this exciting medium and finish a complete, self-contained story. No proficiency in drawing is required; only a desire to use images and words to create compelling stories.
