This January I'll be commencing to teach an 8 week evening course in comic making entitled Visual Storytelling.
It's going to be on in Marino College in Fairview, Dublin and will begin on Monday 27th January from 7-9pm and continue each following Monday night.
Students will learn the basics of comic storytelling and each create their own multi-page, black and white story for inclusion in a class anthology, a copy of which they will receive at the final class.
The focus will be on storytelling through words and pictures with an emphasis on personal and autobiographical work. The class does not require previous drawing experience though it will include hints and tips on cartooning, design and other related visual skills as well as information on the layout and print-production aspect of comic book creation.
Each class will include hands-on practical exercises as well as ‘homework’ for the following weeks. Materials will be provided for the first class.
The course will consist of 8 weeks of 2 hour classes. The overall cost for the course is €80. Sign-up for the course is Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st January at Marino College from 5-8pm - more details on sign-up and the postal enrolment form here.
