ART 250 - Graphic Novel

An emergent form, the graphic novel has recently come into its own for readers, publishers, artists, and writers.  In a series of workshops and seminar sessions, this course takes up the study of some recent acclaimed graphic novels, with close attention paid to the specific techniques of word and image that elevate these works to prominence in their genre.  The lessons in craft produced by this close analysis will then inform the creation of stand-alone segments of original graphic novels produced by students in the course.  Students have the option to receive special emphasis in their final grade on their visual art and/or their creative writing.

Prerequisites: ART 101 and ENG 210 or permission of the instructor
