ART 515 Sequential Art, Comics and the Graphic Novel

This is a studio-based course where, through in-class and long term research projects, discourse, and study of historical and contemporary comics and graphic novels, students will develop practical skills and a critical eye towards their creative development in the comprehension and realization of this visual language. We will attempt to define and practice this common medium that is frequently taken for granted, and come to appreciate comics as a medium unto itself. This course has the potential for a diverse group of students with different interests, sensibilities and backgrounds to engage with visual communication and work with each other to develop rich narratives regardless of a conventional background in visual art. No credit given to students with credit for ART 451.
