MON, MAR 15 10:00 PM UTC | 2.0 hrs

Week 1 - Skills Bootcamp

Spongebob Squarepants Lifting Weights

Get to know your fellow studio mates and jump into the fray by making some quick and dirty comics!

We will go over the structure of this course, expectations, and the theory behind it. The facilitator will explain how it will all come together in our publications.


  • We will begin with some fun drawing-based peer introductions, after which you will get the opportunity to identify your personal creative goals for the next 5 weeks.
  • We will do some constraint-based comics-making warm-ups and will introduce modular comics-making during a 40-minute mini-workshop. This approach to comics-making is a technique you will get to experiment with throughout the course of this course.

During this week there will be 2+ open studio sessions where you will be able to get together outside of class and work on your homework together.

Homework: You will create 5 pages of comics in response to 5 constraint-based prompts from the facilitator.
