Description

Class Experience

In this course students will improve the following skills:
-focus & concentration 
-analysis skills
-oral communication skills
-writing abilities
-storytelling abilities
-peer communication
-and of course knowledge of comics and drawing techniques.
I actually got to learn how to teach comics from an iconic figure in the comics world named Scott McCloud just as his seminal book Understanding Comics had been released for the first time.  Since then I've taught over 15 comics classes in summer camps. I've also been invited into public schools and been awarded grants to teach comics to kids.  I come from a writing background, but comic books are a unique medium comprised of half writing and half visual story telling.  Teachers used to walk by the classes that I taught and snicker -- they'd never seen a group of boys so completely focussed and quiet before. 
Students will be encouraged to complete the assignments that we start in class each week. These assignments might take up to an hour to finish. But it's also perfectly acceptable to show work that isn't finished yet.
Items you may already have at home: -unlined paper -a ruler -pencils that have a nice point, -an eraser -pencil sharpener. TO BUY: a good set of pens will be very helpful--we'll be working with the color black a LOT so a good pen that can fill in lots of black is needed.Learners will need this pen set or one like it: https://www.dickblick.com/products/sakura-manga-comic-pro-sets/?clickTracking=true&wmcp=pla&wmcid=items&wmckw=20702-1089&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIi-ORsY2q6AIVWsDICh3Peg84EAQYBCABEgIabfD_BwE
Students will remark upon what they like and remember about other students comics.  I've found that people really pay attention to what their peers have to say. They can tell when their peers are being sincere in their admiration. Moreover, the students tend to model after the instructor and the better students in class. 
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
