If you are interested in this literary form, California College of Arts instructor Matt Silady is offering a course, “Comics: Art in Relationship” through Kadenze.  The course starts on February 17, 2016 and features 5 sessions.  The description is sketchy enough that although I assume that means 5 weeks, it is an assumption.

Here is what will be covered in the 5 sessions:

  • Session 1: Defining Comics
    Identify key relationships in sample texts & demonstrate the use various camera angles on a comics page
  • Session 2: Comics Relationships
    Create Text-Image and Image-Image Panels
  • Session 3: Time And Space
    One Second, One Hour, One Day Comics Challenge
  • Session 4: Layout And Grid Design
    Apply multiple panel grids to provided script
  • Session 5: Thumbnails
    Create thumbnail sketches of a multipage scene

The time required to do the coursework each week is estimated at 10 hours/week.  This is a bit more of a time commitment than I can make right now, but it looks really interesting (see video below).  Hopefully some of you will be able to take advantage of this opportunity. Me?  I’m still waffling.  I don’t  have time but … I’m not an illustrator but …
