The Graphic Novel: Telling Stories with Pictures
  • Instructor: Lee Post
  • Class: 1 week, 8 hours
  • Dates: Mar 7, 8, 9, and 10
  • Day/Time: Mon – Thurs, 1-3 p.m.
  • Location: 645 W. 3rd Ave, Anchorage
A class in graphic storytelling, with a focus on using the language of comics to tell a basic story in successively longer graphic styles. Beginning with the basic theories behind graphic storytelling, students will draw a one panel New Yorker style gag strip, followed by communicating an idea using a three-panel structure that includes pacing, setting and adding speech. The third session covers the classic 9-panel grid as students explore page layout, mood and flow over an entire page. In the final session, students will explore a freestyle page layout that balances creativity with readability.
