In this three-hour intensive session, Brooklyn’s own DEAN HASPIEL will share his knowledge of how to tell stories in words and pictures. Whether you goal is to create your own stories from first inspiration to finished comic—paper or digital—or to work as part of a collaborative team, Dean will show you how ideas become images and images become stories. Combining an interactive lecture with in-class assignments and critiques of each student’s work, this class will test the limits of your storytelling abilities as you stretch heretofore-unknown narrative muscles.
[Note: Students are expected to bring sketchbooks and pencils. A sense of wonder wouldn’t hurt, either.]
