This course is designed as a way to collaboratively develop a language and praxis for artists who work or wish to work in comics. Students will examine the nature of comics as an application of drawing, story-telling, print-media and conceptual art. Collaboratively, we will work towards a nuanced and applicable understanding of art-economies, information dissemination and how these things relate to access, identity and function.

 

This course aims to engage and invigorate studentʼ​s​ ​understanding of comics, whether it is advanced, casual or non-existent. The readings and exercises have been chosen and designed so that they may cater to both beginners and experts, aiming to advance the studio practices of artists who work in any medium. We will examine the work of both canonical artists and more obscure figures.
