Storytelling_Comics.jpg

+ Details

Whether they know it or not, visual storytelling is one of the most important aspects of your children’s literature. Throughout the course of this eight-week class, students will learn to compose images using basic shapes, create original characters and settings, provide constructive feedback to their peers, ink and color their own penciled work, and produce a fully-polished, multi-panel sequential art piece as a final project. Most importantly, students will learn to exercise patience and imagination during the creative process as they discover how to convey meaning through images.

If your child has expressed an interest in comics, picture books, animation, or other forms of visual media, there’s a spot waiting for them in PlayArt’s Visual Storytelling class!
