Highland Park Literary Festival-Workshops

I’ll be teaching workshops at the Highland Park Literary Festival on Friday, February 22nd on creating graphic novels. All sections are filled.

Workshop: Graphic Novels – Ready, Set, Go! Have you ever wanted to tell stories visually? Get started now! By the end of this workshop, you will complete one page of a graphic novel and be prepared to create many more. We’ll start with an idea, do quick sketches, work up a rough draft, then refine the strongest elements into a final comic-style page. Students will go over the basics- plot, characters, point of view, setting, theme, symbolism, and conflict. Learn to handle narration, panels, and dialogue by looking at the history of visual conventions. This fast-paced, hands-on course will help you start combining stories with art. Drawing skills are not required-just a positive attitude and a willingness to experiment.
