No story is too small! In this introductory course, we will explore sharing our stories through autobiographical comics and comic diaries. We will work through ideas like getting in the flow with stream-of-consciousness writing and drawing, crafting an exciting alias for yourself and developing more expressive characters. Additionally, we talk about the basics of comic books like layout and panels, speech bubbles, etc. Students will learn new ways to capture moments, express their ponderings and share their observations through daily comics, visual journals and sketchbook diaries.
