COMIC BOOKS / CHILDREN'S PICTURE BOOKS 8-WEEK WORKSHOP

Sunday afternoons beginning May 5th, 2019

(5/5, 5/12, 5/19, 5/26, 6/2, 6/9, 6/16, 6/23)

2-4 p.m.

Instructor: Bob Pendarvis


Sequential Art Professor Bob Pendarvis will be teaching a workshop for students and practicing artists looking to improve their visual storytelling skills for illustrating comic books and children's picture books. Each session will consist of lectures, exercises, slide show presentations and critiques. Despite a few hours of homework being suggested every week, all sessions will be designed to be informative and fun whether homework is completed or not. Writers who'd like to better understand the artist's role will be just as welcome. Students will be expected to bring their own art supplies, although substitute materials can be provided if necessary.


Bob's former students have gone on to work as visual storytellers at companies like Dreamworks, EA Games, Marvel Comics, Nickelodeon, Adult Swim, Disney, Hasbro, DC Comics, Tokyopop and IDW. Those students fondly remember how much fun his classes were, but also remember how Bob's insightful critiques helped them develop their visual storytelling skills. 


The 8-week workshop will be held during eight Sunday afternoon sessions (2-4pm) starting on May 5th and lasting until June 23rd.  Based on their preferences, students will also be given an extra month to submit a final portfolio in order to receive a written analysis highlighting strengths and weaknesses in their work. 


Price for the eight week workshop is $400 for members and $450 for non-members. A $200 deposit is due at the time of registration with the balance due on the first day of class or you can pay in full at the time of registration.
