Cost: $80 (Four 75-minute sessions)

This class introduces students to the materials and skills required to make their own comics. Special emphasis is placed on using drawing as a means of storytelling, and students will learn to use their personal interests and individual experiences to create their own mini-comic by the classes’ end. This class will help students develop good drawing habits, and students will learn to combine careful planning with personal expression through the unique medium of comics. A small class size (5-8 students) ensures a high degree of individualized instruction for each student in class.
Student will need to bring the following materials:

Sketchbook: The sketchbook is an essential part of making comics and learning to draw. Any bound or spiral bound sketchbook will do. I recommend something 8.5" by 11" in size, but anything the student feels comfortable drawing in regularly should work.
Pencils: 4 x 2B drawing pencils. Any brand should be fine. I like Staedtler Mars Lumographs.
Pens: 2 x Black Sakura Pigma Micron Markers, Size 05.
Brush: Each student will need a number 1 round watercolor brush. I strongly recommend an inexpensive brush like a Windsor Newton Student Series, or a Princeton Synthetic brush. Ink will be provided in class, but students are free to get their own bottle of ink to practice at home if they so choose.
Students are also welcome to bring their own preferred drawing supplies if they like, but additional supplies are not required.
Loose leaf paper, rulers, extra pencils, drawing ink and other materials will be provided during classroom time.
