Making Time: Manifesting Sequential Narratives

It’s just a matter of time… This Special Topics class is an amazing opportunity to work alongside the talented Sara Drake (read her Bad at Sports interview to learn about her work!) exploring comics through the medium’s most fundamental element: time. Together we will examine different philosophies and narrative forms that attempt to represent time visually and use them as a starting point for our own practices. Through a series of weekly drawing exercises and assignments, we will experiment with the unique hybrid relationship between image and language that comics present. This class emphasizes experimentation over production and will best benefit creators looking to bring new energy and vision to their practice. Prior experience with drawing, writing or creating comics is welcome but not required.
