Art Institute of Boston
I am teaching a high school pre-college class on Comics and the Graphic Novel this summer at the Art Institute of Boston.
Comics and the Graphic Novel
This is an introductory course focusing on the history and production of graphic novels. Major figures and their work are reviewed and studied for inspiration. Students will view the collection of graphic novels in the AIB library. Students learn the basics of producing their own short comic story from beginning to end using various materials and techniques such as pencil, ink and brush washes, nib pen work, watercolor and markers, and some computer scanning. Character design, storytelling, and composition are stressed.
