Graphic novels and comics—and the mythology behind them—are heavily ingrained in pop culture. Learn cartooning and graphic-novel story development while drawing on your own sources of inspiration. Develop and design your own creative comics from conception to finished product, while practicing graphic-design techniques and using color theory.
Comic Art students spend their days in open-air studios engaging in a combination of direct instruction by experienced art educators and professional comic artists, studio work time, collaboration with other young artists, and sharing and reflecting on their work. At the end of their session, students have the opportunity to celebrate their work by participating in Usdan's Comic Con, the Art Parade, Open Studios day, or a celebration with their class in-studio. All levels are welcome. Classes are grouped according to age division and grade.
