This semester I’ll be teaching two classes in the Continuing Education department at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan.
I’m also very excited to announce that I’ll be teaching a comics class as well. It’s called Comics Narratives and if you have the SVA catalog you will find the teacher listed as Jim Higgins. Jim is moving to LA and I’m happily stepping in to take over as I’ve been eying getting back to teaching comics in CE for a while now. This will be a workshop class focusing on storytelling and narrative structure. We’ll do some short exercises in the first half of the class, then everyone will embark on a longer project. You can get a lot out of this whether you’re a beginner or a published author. CE is a great forum to get feedback on your work, from your teacher but, just as importantly, from your classmates, who are always a diverse and interesting bunch.
Both classes run in the evenings for 12 weeks and are open to the general public; Ink Drawing starts Tuesday, Sept. 18 and Comics Narratives Wednesday, September 19.
