Every Monday, 10 sessions, £195
From 25 September 2017 to 27 November 2017, 6.30pm – 9pm
Tutor: Emily Haworth-Booth
This course is designed both to introduce beginners to the huge potential of the graphic novel form, and to allow those with some experience to reconsider style and process, receive feedback and experiment with technique. Shorter exercises will generate ideas, build confidence and skills and encourage experimentation, before leading on to individual project work with one-to-one support from the tutor. Students will explore the many different forms the drawn story can take, from fiction to diary comics, memoir, literary adaptation, biography and history, with inspiration drawn from contemporary examples. They will create several of their own comics and graphic short stories and will finish the course with a complete pencilled and inked story. Some life drawing is incorporated into the term with an emphasis on combining observation with imagination. Optional homework is set each week. Open to all levels.
