Course Description

Illustration by Shi Shi Jacobs

In this course students learn how to create a compelling narrative from their own story, identity and viewpoint. Expansion of material experimentation allows students to develop more personalized and effective concepts. Focus will be on resourcing references and creating human- and animal-based characters. Genres of communication such as social commentary and fiction are investigated to further develop personal areas of interest, process and style. The course concludes with a student presentation of a final project.
