About the Teaching Artist

My name is Abby and I have been teaching watercolor and comic book creation for about 5 years now! I love to focus on the steps to the final creation when I provide instruction so that students can more quickly find a rhythm that works for them and begin to use their creativity at the earliest point possible! I have been working in comics for several years now and have multiple works published. I am excited to be able to bring that to others!

Class Description

This class will cover the foundations of comic creative creation. We will cover the communications that are needed to create comics, as well as the production side including how to create dimensional characters with backstories, how to create comic panels and what each panel is used for, how to draw comic panels in ways that allow them to be easily read and more.
