This course provides students with a means for creative self-discovery and the exploration of complex ideas. Students record their observations, experiences, and memories in a sketchbook and translate this material into various graphic narratives of varying lengths. The class explores the rhythms of storytelling and formal elements of comics. Students learn to compose comic pages using iconic visual language, while experimenting with a variety of tools, media, and approaches.
