This is a neat little class! The project to draw a strip about a song is fun and really teaches the skills. Plus, the instructor does a great job - conversational, funny and really informative. If you want to learn how to draw comics, this is a good place to start.
Loved the class! Pleasant and charismatic teacher, clean speech, plain explanation of the process. Brilliant! Can't wait to start working on my own comic strip.
