Comics Creation Workshop
Jul 18, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Description: Comics are a synthesis of the written word, and the visual image. Creating them involves skills as diverse as scriptwriting, page layout, camera angles, draftsmanship, and lighting. Creating a comic will involve a lot of different pieces of knowledge, whether you’re creating on a team, or on your own. For those who have an idea they want to get into comic book form, this class will be an ideal introduction to the comic-creation process, how the comic book industry works, and different options for getting your work in front of audiences. This course will help students accelerate their knowledge of all angles of the industry, how to go about completing their own projects, or how to get a job on a comics-creating team. Students will create an 8-10 page mini comic in the course of 4 weeks, going from the ground up from concept to print, ending with a mini-convention at Geek Forest, in which students may showcase their work to the world. This course will include homework between sessions in which students will work on their personal project. By experiencing all stages of the comic creating process, students will become more ready and prepared to collaborate, to set out independently, and to pitch an idea.
Prerequisites: 18+ – This class is ideal for those with an idea for a comic, who have been working on a comic, or who want to develop a portfolio to get into the industry.
Materials: Will be provided. Bring your favorite drawing tool!
