Comics and The Fine Arts (6weeks/online)

Comics and The Fine Arts (6weeks/online)

Instructor: Emmy Waldman and Joanne Kaufman

Wednesdays, 7 - 9 pm EST 

October 7 - November 11 (six weeks)

 

This workshop draws on the intersection of the fine arts and comics. It will begin with a lecture by Emmy Waldman that will set the tone for the remainder of the class. Thinking of the grid as a mechanism used in modernist art, the graphic novel, comics, and today on the Zoom screen, students will think in terms of sequential movement across the page as graphic narrative. The narrative for each student may be different – for some it may be literal storytelling, for others it becomes visually descriptive, in some cases it might involve language, and for some it may become purely pictorial and abstract. Readings and screen shared images will provide inspiration for this unique class, as well as talks by some guest speakers. The class will be taught live through Zoom.
