I'll shortly be teaching the 8 week evening course in comic making again. It's called Visual Storytelling.*amendments in red below*
It's going to be on in Marino College in Fairview, Dublin and will begin on Monday 29th September 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.
See some of the excellent work from the last session in January here.
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 22nd and Tuesday 23rd September at Marino College from 5.30-8pm.
