I am excited to announce that this Spring, beginning April 26, I will be teaching an 8-week course titled “Comic Book Illustration/Illustration de Bande-Dessinée” at the Visual Arts Centre in Westmount. Classes will be held on Thursday evenings from 7 to 10, and will be taught in both French and English. The cost is $230 + materials. Here is the short course description that can be found in the VAC Spring/Summer 2018 program:
Bringing together images and words, comics are an exciting and accessible means of storytelling and self-expression. Learn basic illustration skills (including expressive figure drawing), inking, layout, character design, and story development, which will then be brought together in the creation of your own short graphic book. The development of a unique style and voice will be encouraged. No previous experience in writing or drawing required.
