Creating Graphic Novels for Teens    NEW!

Create your own graphic novel! Using your original story, we will go step by step through the process of scripting, storyboarding, pacing and laying out your graphic novel. We will examine Manga, comics, graphic novels and picture books for examples of the many different ways to tell a story using illustration and words. You become the director, using cinematic and theatrical techniques to add emotion, drama and humor to your graphic masterpiece. Some basic drawing skills recommended, but not necessary. Imagination a must!
