PANEL BY PANEL: THE LANGUAGE OF GRAPHIC NOVELS

Sequential art, graphic novels, comics: They’re all synonyms for telling a story through art, panel by panel. This participatory workshop will explore how comics can be as visually rich as film, while allowing readers to control pacing and bring their own imagination into the action. Participants will discover why so much of our mass media entertainment has been birthed from this powerful, still developing medium and learn how to make their own short comics sequence that uses the visual language of graphic novels—opening up a whole new way to express and communicate ideas.
