ART-4007 Graphic Novels

3 credits
Prerequisite(s): ART-1011  , ART-2110  , and ENG-1072  
One could argue that cave paintings were the first comics, but this course focuses on more recent graphic novels, including award winning works by Art Spiegelman, Alison Bechdel, Marjane Satrapi, Chris Ware, Daniel Clowes, Joe Sacco and many more.  In addition to reading masterworks, we’ll study the history of comics, and the many uses of comics from advertising to animation.  Students will also design and produce their own limited edition graphic chapbooks.  Drawing is only one way to approach this, but not the only way – painters, photographers, writers and mixed-media artists are all welcome.
