We’ve just been informed that long time friend of The Beguiling Fiona Smyth will be teaching a class on comics this winter at OCAD, The Ontario College of Art and Design. It sounds like a great class for aspiring comics creators and creative people, check out the details below:
Comics and Graphic Novels
CSLW 1N11, 6 Weeks
Instructor: Fiona Smyth
Tuesdays, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., Jan 25-Mar 1, 2011
Prerequisite: some art, design, craft training, or equivalent experience.
In this interdisciplinary workshop series for writers, artists, and designers, students will experiment with the comic medium as they explore the interplay between image and text, form and content. Drawing cues from historical and contemporary examples of textual/graphic work, students will conceptualize comic projects in various forms, constructing compelling narratives through dialogue and visual representations. By the end of the series students will have produced short and longer form comics or graphic works.
Cost: $325 + HST
