Do you like comics and graphic novels? Have you ever wondered about what goes into making them? Introduction to Comics and Graphic Narratives will provide you with the tools to do so.

This course will cover a brief history of comics and common visual tropes and tools used to tell graphic narratives. Gain a greater understanding of how to tell a story using words and pictures. Learn how to choose the right moments to draw, and how to use them to create pacing and atmosphere in your own stories. The focus is less on technical drawing and more on storytelling and tapping into your imagination.

You will also learn skills on how to create effective lettering and line art for production, and how to assemble and publish your own work.
