Have you always wanted to write and/or draw comics? Are you interested in partnering with an artist to form a creative team to craft a graphic narrative? Learn some key lessons in creating your own comics with artist and educator James Greene in this three-part workshop. Exploit the real-estate of the blank page while yielding to the collaborative virtues of words and pictures where image is text, too.

Practice the art of sequential storytelling with comics educator James Greene, creator of Meet the Neighbors and the KAIROS series of student comics anthologies.

Session 2: The "Invisible" Art (July 31, 2021)
