FALL 2017 – Comics & Graphic Novels

Venue: 1131 Mission Street

Comics & Graphic Novels

This four-session course encourages investigation of the relationships between images, text, story, and the comic book as an art object. Group critiques, analyzation of narrative art forms, and exercises in juxtaposing and abstracting imagery will support students' understanding of comics and graphic novels. By the end of the course, each student will have created two mini comics and a longer, autobiographical comic and will have a deeper understanding of how to use their drawings to communicate stories and ideas. A materials list will be provided upon registration.

COVID UPDATE

In response to the current COVID-19 situation, we require that all persons continue to wear masks at all times when in the Root Division space. For the safety of our students, artists, and extended community, we also require all students to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination (or same-day negative test results) for entry to classes held indoors at Root Division.

You may bring a physical copy of your vaccination card or via digital download through the State of California Digital Vaccine Record Portal here. (You may also provide a negative test result taken before each class session. Please contact us with any questions about the types of test results accepted.)

We ask this as a show of community care and a move towards continued safety while gathering in-person.
