Pre-College: Drawing for Comics

with Jeff Kilpatrick


In this course, we emphasize cartooning basics, studying drawing and inking techniques with a variety of professional tools. You will be taught to integrate narration with the language of sequential art (comics). Students will first write a story (choose either fiction or non-fiction) then design characters and environments to be used as they transform that story into a short-form comic.

Students are responsible for bringing all art supplies.

A materials list will be emailed to registered students two weeks before class and made available on PAFA's website.
