About This Class
Comics are a combination of pictures and words, but also a whole new narrative medium on its own! In this class, I will guide you through the process of planning and making a comic, using some of the narrative techniques that are unique to this kind of visual narrative.
What you'll learn in this class:
- Choosing the key moments and actions you'll show in your comic
- Framing your comic panels to better communicate your story
- Adding text and speech bubbles to your comic
- Organizing a comic page in a way that's appealing and easy to read
This class is for anyone who wants to get started on comics, and requires no previous knowledge in this area! You can work with whatever medium or art style you want, so you can make a comic with your favorite tools or try something new!

A great class in making comics with lots of ways to generate ideas and put character into your scenes. The feedback on my project was invaluable also. If you're a complete beginner to making comics I would also recommend the class by Christine Nishiyama to accompany this one. :)
