CEGN 240 F001: Narrative Structures

Oct 8
Nov 26
Combining the elements of drawing and text, comics can be applied to all types of stories -- from short tales to sprawling sagas -- without being limited to one particular style or audience. This course will take the form of a participatory creative workshop, featuring a variety of exercises designed to perform two key functions: first to learn the principles of comics storytelling and to spark the imagination, then to develop your ideas toward future work. The remainder of the course will consist of studio time and group critiques that will guide you along the path toward creating comics and stories in your own unique voice.
