My Independent Projects Seminar: Comics with Tom Hart begins Saturday, June 12. This class is an independent study where advanced students work on a project to be defined during the first meeting: a chapter of a graphic novel, an entire short story, a certain number of webcomics, etc. We meet for three whole Saturdays, 11-5PM, spaced out over a semester. The group energy and feedback level of this class is something to see, several students have taken it multiple times and many already know each other from previous classes together.
I'm taking a break from my other CE class, Comics Storytelling, but I have a very able replacement in Tom Hart. The class is definitely running but I think there's still some space.
If you just want to dip your toes into cartooning, Tom Motley's Cartooning Basics class is for you. He covers all the essential knowledge you need to make comics. You may have seen Tom's handsome mug gracing the MTA for the last 6 months or so...
Finally, Lauren Weinstein had a new class called Design and Build Comics which sounds really great. As I understand it, the goal is to make a comic design for a specific format (minicomic, origami, map, etc.) with the goal of exploring the interrelation of content and form and also to create a cool little art book. She'll also be taking back the helm on the inking class.
