Adult Group Classes and Workshops

Creating Comics

Wednesdays from Feb. 14 - March 20

Class Description

Comic book stories have a basic, clear format that make them loved by all ages and backgrounds. In this course, students will focus on a wide variety of ways to create the stories we love and the stories we tell. Strategies for generating plot, characters, and setting from traditional to experimental will be introduced and developed. The interaction of panel composition, flow, timing, and rhythm will be explored and discussed through contemporary examples. Each week, students will focus on and practice a different story-making element. This class series will examine the theories behind storytelling using practical exercises to help students recognize and use the components of a good story. All supplies included!

A Charlotte-based artist, Ken Knudtsen is a recently relocated NY writer and artist (Wolverine) and the creator of My Monkey's Name is Jennifer (SLG Publishing), and has also worked on animation for projects developed by Comedy Central, Robert Reich, and PBS. Feel free to discuss with him the awesomeness of Huey Lewis & the News, Fast Five, John Wick, and Aquaman!

Free parking is available in the lot on 5th St. directly next to the building, and our studios are also easily accessible from CATS buses, the LYNX Blue Line, and the CityLYNX Gold Line.
