Comics and Graphic Novels at OCAD U

I’m teaching Comics and Graphic Novels at OCAD U this fall.  The course is offered at two different times:

Course Dates :
Thursday, September 11, 2014 - Thursday, October 16, 2014 
Course Times:       6:30pm - 9:30pm

Course Dates :
Saturday, October 25, 2014 - Saturday, November 29, 2014 
Course Times:       1:30pm - 4:30pm


In this interdisciplinary workshop series for writers, artists, and designers, students will experiment with the comic medium as they explore the interplay between image and text, form and content. Drawing cues from historical and contemporary examples of textual/graphic work, students will conceptualize comic projects in various forms, constructing compelling narratives through dialogue and visual representations. By the end of the series students should have produced short and longer form comics or graphic works. This course qualifies for the Certificate in Art and Design Studio Skills.

Please check out the OCAD U Continuing Studies site for fees and registration:
