This three hour class will introduce people to the art of storytelling. In class you will be asked to interpret text from a short song lyric or a nursery rhyme. You will be asked to do this in 6-9 panels or artworks. We will discuss how best to communicate the story. We will go over what your artwork looks like and what would be the best way to execute the final art. We will look at examples of the different types of storytelling - graphic novels, comics, book illustration, short videos, etc... We also will go over what you possibly need to show, what you can leave out and the different perspectives and views in which you can reveal the meaning of the text. After you create art for the short text we will discuss and critique your final art and discuss how you can move forward in your development.
