ART-2007 FYS: Comix Go Legit: Contemporary Graphic

3 credits
First-year students only
One could argue that cave paintings were the first comics, but this course focuses on the most recent graphic novels, including award winning works by Art Spiegelman, Marjane Satrapi, Chris Ware, Daniel Clowes, Alison Bechdel and many more. In addition to reading masterworks, we will study the history of comics and the many uses of comics, including advertising and animation. Students will also design their own comics and produce a limited edition graphic of their own work. Drawing is only one way to approach this, but not the only way- photographers, writers, collage artists and stick-figure maestros are all welcome. General Education (on-campus) Course Type: JFY (First-Year Seminar) General Education (EDP) Course Type: UPR (Univeral & Philosophical Relationships); second half
