Description

Poetry Comics is back! Join us for this online class taught by award-winning comics artist David Lasky.

 

This is a poetry comics class for spring, focusing on short haiku comics of roughly 3 or 4 panels. Every Sunday, for 6 sessions, we'll meet online and look at notable examples of haiku poems, and then learn a comics-making technique. We'll write haikus from prompts, then we'll explore concepts and techniques to turn these haikus into comics. Share your optional homework with your fellow students and receive instructor feedback. By the end of spring, you will have up to 6 new comic strips.

 

This 6-session class will take place online on Sundays from 1-2 pm on the following dates:

  • April 7
  • April 14
  • April 21
  • April 28
  • May 5
  • May 12

 

All skill levels are welcome. Upon registration, and 24 hours prior to the event, you'll receive additional information for the online class. All classes are recorded and are shared via Google Classroom--a personal Google account is recommended. You'll need a computer or device that can reliably connect to Zoom. We also recommend a scanner or camera for sharing your work.

 

Seattle artist David Lasky co-authored the graphic novel "Carter Family: Don’t Forget This Song," which won comics’ Eisner Award in 2013. While he's not an authority on poetry, he has been writing it in his spare time for over 20 years. David has also been a graphic novel instructor for the last 16 years, teaching to all ages and skill levels.
