Students hone their visual communication and storytelling skills through hand-drawing their own original graphic tale with the guidance of award-win-ning artist Raul Gonzalez. An inspiring teacher, Raul has taught at both the Museum of Fine Arts and the Institute for Contemporary Arts in Boston.
Graphic novels, anime, and comic book art are ideal genres for learning to express personal stories and work through challenges visually, tactilely, and with imagination. Students will practice finding their story, expressing ideas through line, shape and color, and creating narrative through visual sequencing. They will leave with a completed hard copy of their own graphic creation.
