Making Comics (Beginner/Intermediate)

Darn Ear by David Carter
Darn Ear by David Carter

From the New Yorker to the daily paper, serious or funny, single-panel or short-sequence strips, comics of all types express so much with so little! Most of the time, sophisticated drawing skills are not necessary, in fact detailed drawing often detract from the sparkling economy of comic communication. What is necessary is an awareness of simple character design, some basic composition, and a consideration of timing. This class will explore the essentials of conceiving, creating, and completing a simple cartoon from the most elementary concept.

Students need to purchase supplies for this class. A list of recommended supplies must be picked up from the School Store located in room 217 of the Torpedo Factory.
