Location: Chicago Room
This course is for anyone who has an interest in expressing themselves through cartoons and those interested in cartoons as an art form. This class is about realizing the potential of becoming a cartoonist no matter your skill level. This course is intended to introduce students to the possibilities cartooning offers as a vehicle to express and communicate effectively. Students should realize that while commercial cartooning may require certain skills and abilities, the only limitation in the art of cartoon storytelling are those self-imposed. Anyone willing to express him or herself honestly can create a legitimate comic. Our objective is to create and complete an original story with original characters.
