2-Day COMICS: Theory and Practice with Scott McCloud
February 23, 2013 10:00 am

Scott McCloud
Join Scott McCloud for a Comic Theory and Practice Workshop hosted by the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art.  This will be a visual lecture and intensive hands-on workshop in the art of making comics. Strong emphasis will be given to developing clarity, storytelling skills and personal expression. Students will learn and apply a variety of techniques for presenting narratives through comics, as well as a wide arsenal of skills applicable to any form of graphic communication. The course culminates in the creation of a short comics feature, written and drawn by each student.
  • No drawing experience required. This is a class about structuring visual communication, not technical rendering. Both beginners and experienced artists are welcome.
