Narrative Considerations in Comics with T. Edward Bak
In part one of the class there will be a focus on identification and assessment of narrative processes in various media. What goals do we have as narrative artists/storytellers? Students will find examples of media/panel configuration ideas for discussion.
Part Two) Presentation of materials and discussion of narrative techniques used in media represented. Students will exchange materials to begin designing/creating 1-2 page comic project based on aspect(s) of narrative in exchanged material.
Part Three) Presentation/critique of student projects.
Students are expected to discuss ideas and different types of art and media in culture and to possess applicable skills (writing, design, drawing) for the preparation of narrative drawings, which reflect comprehension of ideas.
The workshop includes exercises/practice/experimentation with media; student’s drawing tools/materials will be at their own discretion.
