The Graphic Novel: Using Art to Create Literature [CLASS FULL–WAIT LIST ONLY]


Oct 14,2017, 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM @ 826 Valencia Writing Lab
Taught by Megan Turner Open to 12 students, ages 11–13 A two-week workshop October 14–21 Saturdays, 12–2 p.m. Interested in the fusion of art and literature? Love to draw, but also find yourself daydreaming about character and plot? Perhaps, then, the graphic novel is for you! Join us as we explore this art form, most recently perfected by writers such as Marjane Satrapi in her Persepolis and Gene Luen Yang in his American Born Chinese. We will explore the traditional aspects of fiction: plot, characters, setting, and conflict—but we will do so with visual art in mind. Using other graphic novels as inspiration, the class will culminate in a final storyboard presentation and critique where students will have the opportunity to admire their fellow classmates’ finished art.
