Fun with Comics with Julie Novakofski
Students will exercise both their drawing and writing skills while exploring the art of comics and creating original character designs and comic pages. This course will begin by teaching some of the basics of drawing characters such as how to convey facial expressions, create movement, shape bodies and customize the look of their characters. As the course progresses students will flex their story telling muscles to create plot and text for the development of their very own short comic, through which they will also learn about both conventional comic layouts as well as be encouraged to experiment in designing their own layouts.
