Comic by Janice Liu

An intermediate comic class for students who’ve completed my Young Cartoonists class. Students will continue to build their skills in comic creation by delving more in-depth into both the writing and drawing aspects of the comic craft.

Topics will vary with each session, but may include writing for different genres of comics (narrative, non-fiction, autobiography, poetry), drawing characters and backgrounds, and anatomy and perspective.

Students new to comics should enroll in this intro class first: Young Cartoonists
