The Ann Arbor Art CenterAnnouncing two new workshop series this September in the SE Michigan area! Registration is now open for my Graphic Novel Academy series (ages 9-12) as well as a Teen session.

Through the 8-week class we’ll study some of the fundamental principles of visual storytelling, explore some of the techniques the pros use to capture movement and create mood and emphasis, as well as learn some design strategies to make our own characters. Materials will be provided for the students. You can register for the classes now on the Ann Arbor Art Center website.

I love teaching this class, as there are always surprises in the sessions where we have impromptu discussions on sound effect design and color theory, based on the students’ interest. We close the class with a gallery showing of the students’ work right there at the Art Center!

Wondering what to expect from the class? You can check out this video from a similar class I teach every summer at the Ann Arbor District Library called Comic Book Academy:

You can see the entire video series on the Ann Arbor District Library website, if you want to see more.
