If you love comics or are curious about them, make your own in our Storytelling Through Comics masterclass and learn just how versatile this medium is.

The majority of people reading this will have misconceptions upon hearing the word "comics." You'll probably think Spider-Man, manga or the Sunday paper. You might think it's something just for kids, or just for nerds, and sure, there's room for all of that. But listen up - comics are a visual medium used to express ideas via images. At their core, that's all a comic is - it's a visual storytelling method.

Comics are evocative and adaptable, and in the 21st century, comic art about every topic under the sun, from depression to historical fiction is available online, in any artistic style imaginable. Use this fanastic and ever-growing medium to share your stories with the world in our masterclass for absolute beginners. You don't even have to be able to draw! (No, really. We swear.)

Your instructor Nathan is a multimedia illustrator and designer, with experience in print and screen-based advertising, multimedia presentations, traditional and digital illustration, animation and almost any application of images and/or text displayed for the purpose of communication. Nathan is a member of Sydney Comics Guild and has lead workshops for other comic artists on digital colouring for comics, effective storytelling through panel layout, expressive character design and dynamic art, and digital methods of comic making.

Nathan developed this Classie workshop specifically for beginners or those outside of the general subculture, and looks forward to helping people who have an interest but may be intimidated by the breadth of the comics world.

If you love comics or are curious about them, try making one of your own and learn how versatile they are!

The techniques you'll learn about panels can be used for storyboarding any concept, so it's also a great resource for anyone looking to start out (or brush up) in film-making, advertising, or marketing, or for those who need to pitch their ideas to a creative team in the workplace.

In this three hour workshop, you will:
- Explore a wide range of examples - learn just how varied in subject and style a comic can be.
- Learn the terminology used in creating this art form and the anatomy of a comic page.
- Study art vs story and the importance of storytelling as the basis for any comic.
- Learn the skills needed to work within this medium, including panel layout, pacing, and inserting text.
- Learn how to express any idea or joke in visual form.
- Create your own hand-drawn and complete single-page comic story, based on your own interpretation of a given concept.

Remember: You don't have to be an artist to attend. This masterclass focuses on storytelling, not technical skills. This class is open to everyone who can hold a pencil - if you can do a stick figure, you can participate. Hey, it works for XCKD.

This class meets near Central Station Sundays. Classes commence at 4pm and run for around 3 hours. Online bookings are essential.
