About This Class

Do you want to write, illustrate, or write AND illustrate your own story but don't know where to start? Join this class and learn a fun and free flowing exercise that will teach you a no-pressure way of creating the basic elements of a story. Beginners can use this exercise to create their own illustrated short story, from scratch!, and more experience writers/artists can use this to work through an artists' block and learn a fresh way of approaching narrative. 

Learn an easy to follow five-part exercise that will help you come up with the basic elements of a story without needing to do any plot or character planning beforehand. You can use this class to create your own visual short story that is a story in it's own right or use it to expand on in later work. It's a very casual and easy to learn approach to a skill that is often viewed as inaccessible or hard to learn. 

All students will leave the class with their own visual (illustrated) short story and the satisfaction of learning a new, somewhat experimental approach to image and story making.

Elizabeth Blue Currier

Illustrator, Comic Artist, Arts Educator

I am an Illustrator, Comic Artist and Arts Educator living and working in Eugene, Oregon. 

Before moving to Oregon, I studied Illustration at the Edinburgh College of Art and then Illustration: Authorial Practice at the University College Falmouth, in England for my MA.
I love all facets of illustration, visual storytelling and the making of picture-books and am thrilled to find this platform to both share what I know and expand my own skill-base.
