TD-12-21 Teen Comic Class with Turner Davis

TEEN COMIC CLASS with Turner Davis

While this class is focused on narrative images and storytelling, students of our Teen Comic Class will discover that beneath all of that, it's about drawing.

Materials to be used will include newsprint, Bristol board and black paper gel pens.  The class will include a brief history of comics and start by defining the medium of comics and some of the aspects of this form that are truly unique in the world of art.  Drawings will include a large scale of options, including creating everything from realism to abstraction, as students learn about panels, gutters, tiers, gutters, splash pages and spreads.  They will also learn to incorporate dialogue, narration and sounds, and how to draw a sequence of narrative and time images in a manner that also requires the reader to fill in the gaps.

Open to ages 11-17.

Turner has an MFA from the Hoffberger School of Painting at the Maryland Institute for the Arts and has had multiple museum exhibitions.  He taught drawing during the Shemer's 2019 Summer Camps.
