This week in Graphic Novel, artists learned principles of character development, narrative, perspective, and color design while towards their final project — their very own comic splash page. Students studied artists Alison Bechdel, Chris Ware, Ralph McQuarrie, and Brian Froud, as well as Star Wars, fantasy forests, and how nature can be embedded in human form. One student named their characters COVID and Ebola and related it to current events — both funny and insightful at the same time! View the students’ online exhibition of work here and view a short film compiled by Teaching Artist Jacob Hicks below.
Summer Art Colony continues online through August.
