Storytelling With Mixed Media Drawing
October 15, 2017 – October 21, 2017
How do images and text weave together to form something more than the picture or the word can say on its own? In this course students explore visual storytelling through a series of mixed media drawings, discovering new and unexpected ways to construct narrative-driven images. You will work primarily on paper with a variety of materials from watercolor, ink, charcoal, graphite and collage. Whether interested in reconstructing part of a personal history, illustrating images for a children’s book, creating a journalistic zine, or documenting a dream, students will learn strategies for effectively and evocatively telling stories with text and pictures. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $525
