***HAVE YOUR MINICOMIC READY FOR MoCCAFEST!*** [MoCCAfest is April 9th & 10th in NYC.]

Minicomics (self-published, hand-made comics) are a great way to get your work seen. In the Minicomics Workshop, cutting-edge cartoonist and editor ROBYN CHAPMAN will demystify the self-publishing process and give an overview of cartooning principals and materials. Topics such as page composition, layout, book craft, print technologies and computer applications will be covered. Students will be given the choice to workshop their own minicomic project, or participate in a class anthology. Cartoonists of all skill levels and experience are welcome.

Each session will offer a studio period devoted to student work. Homework will be assigned.

Independent Projects
Students who wish to workshop a minicomic project are encouraged to come to the first session with a project in mind. The instructor will work with students one-on-one to insure the projects are attainable and publishable. Independent projects will be brought to a dummy book or master sheet stage by the last day of class.

Group Anthology Project
Students may choose to participate in a class anthology. This is anthology will be titled Wish You Were Here, and it will consist of comic pages inspired by actual postcard correspondence. The anthology will be published on the last day of class.

Required Supplies and Expenses:

* $10 (minimum) copy budget for final production.
* A notebook (or sketchbook, or binder) for note taking. Pens or pencils for writing.

· Art supplies necessary to produce pages of black and white comics. (Feel free to use supplies you are most comfortable with. Options will be discussed in class.)
