Comics Classes with Jim Higgins

Making Comics now starts on Saturday, January 26.  Comics for Kids will still accept students up until this Saturday.

There was almost no enrollment for the Making Comics class that was supposed to start this past Saturday, so I’m moving the start date to January 26.  I think having the class begin so soon after Christmas and the other holidays made it hard for people who wanted to wait til they spent more money.  Plus, some people were probably still hungover from New Year’s Eve (!)  In any case, I hope the extra time means that some of you will consider jumping in to this cool class where you’ll get a soup-to-nuts immersion in the language of comics.

Also, the Comics For Kids class is still taking students so if you want your young’un to be in the class, e-mail me and bring them down this Saturday.Making Comics
Making Comics is a 12-session class that focuses on the fundamental skills of creating comics.  The class is for both writers and artists.  In it, you’ll learn the most important aspect of writing — how to structure a story as it relates to the medium of comics, one with interesting characters, an engaging plot, and a satisfying ending. The artists will be given drawing tips, instruction about technique, and examples of work by great masters, new and old, to help with visual storytelling, and other drawing skills. Writers will be given example of the best formats for comics scripts, examples of pro scripts, and info on how to find and work with artists.

The goal for the artists is to have a finished 8 to 10-page mini-comic that is a complete, self-contained story at the end of the classes. The goal for writers is to have a completed script for a self-contained, 14 to 15-page short comics story.
