In this workshop, we will carry out various practical drawing games, with the intention of learning the language of comics, the use of its resources and the creation of our own comics.
The activities are designed from a playful perspective, suitable for young people of any level.
In this first part, we will see how to develop our characters and stories through imagination, we will learn several tricks to improve our ideas and the level of drawing.
We will talk about humor comics, manga or superheroes, and we will learn to draw in various styles and with various techniques.
Concepts to develop:
We will work on the composition of a page in cartoons, the creation of our characters, the human figure, as well as the language used in the medium (balloons, onomatopoeia, etc.), and various very curious drawing and color techniques to carry out our works.
We will also develop various drawing guidelines and methods to improve our imagination and our notions of drawing.
The objective of the course is to ensure that students learn to use the language of comics to translate it into their own projects.
