Mark Making and Comics Appreciation is a four-week workshop meeting on Sunday nights in April, taught by Liz Yerby. Each week, Liz will give a short lecture on a comics artist or aspect of the medium of comics, and then participants will do drawing exercises together. Between sessions there will be optional homework, such as doing a few 15-minute drawing exercises throughout the week and reading a comic book.

The purpose of this class is to approach drawing in a manner that is experimental and kind. Content covered in lectures includes the work of Tove Jansson, Aya by Marguerite Abouet, the work of David B, and more.
