This week-long class I'm teaching is designed to give an overview of basic drawing and the narrative art medium. We will work in industry sizes and specs, covering a wide variety of narrative approaches from documentary to slice of life stories. Students will work in a variety of media as well. Set-ups, timing, props, choice of shot, and character development are all emphasized.
This is a unique experience to be teaching a class in the town that is the setting for my upcoming documentary graphic novel What Follows Is True...Crescent: The Baker Years. I will be discussing the production of this book and showing examples as well. For more information about ESSA, visit them on the web atessaart.org.
