Garden B

What makes for strong visual storytelling in comics, graphic novels, and picture books, and how can we use those ideas and techniques to craft our own unique and intriguing stories. Visual storytelling is a huge part of how we digest information and convey ideas in not only art, but in a host of creative endeavors. Through exploring the works of a variety of creators and crafting our own one page story, the students will learn how to communicate ideas through visuals paired with strongly crafted storytelling.
