The goal of this course is to create narrative-based mini comics, formatted for the Risograph. Students will experiment with writing and drawing short comics, and explore the process of Risograph printing and zine assembly. We will analyze comics not only through written and drawn techniques, but also through color, physicality and printing techniques. This course is for students who are interested in creating comics, as well as producing thoughtful, tangible art objects. Students will complete a mini comic, formatted for Risograph printing.
NOTE: Access to the RisoLAB is not available for the spring 2021 semester. All students with an active registration in this online course will be given free access to the Adobe Creative Cloud. This course is fully online and offered through synchronous sessions during the listed course hours.
