Pre-College: Drawing for Comics, DR 723 EC
with Jeff Kilpatrick
In this course, students will be taught cartooning basics, studying drawing and inking techniques using a variety of professional tools. They will also be taught the language of sequential art (comics). Students will write a story based on real life or imagination, then design characters and environments to be used as they transform that story into a short-form comic. The course will utilize the online learning platform Canvas, and includes videos, lectures and assignments with regular instructor feedback, as well as live chat via Zoom.
Students should be prepared with supplies from the required materials list.
Students have the option of taking this class for 1.0 college credit or no credit. The only difference in experience is that "for-credit" students will receive a grade for their work.
