Introduction to Comics
Instructor: Jason Mathis
Monday - Friday 9am – 4pm | July 7 - 11

Price: $795; $715 senior / educator / alumni or Early Bird rate (register before April 10)

Explore the steps of creating your own comic like a pro! We’ll begin by understanding the parts of a comic, and how they contribute to the whole. From pencils and inks, to plotting and dialogue, we’ll bring them all together to make comics of our own. Examples, discussions, and feedback will take place alongside studio work. Students will be introduced to one digital tool, Manga Studio, and learn the pros and cons of digital vs analog methods. By week’s end, everyone will have produced their own comic. Minimum age is 15 years.

Prerequisite: none required
