Cartoon Storytelling Is Back at Second City

July 1, 2016

Join me for a full Cartoon Storytelling class at the famed Second City, Chicago Starts Tuesday, July 5.

Bring your story ideas to life in cartoon format, no experience necessary. In Cartoon Storytelling you will explore narrative, character development and format. In-class writing and drawing exercises help you discover new possibilities in expressing your ideas and point of view. You’ll try your hand at several formats (comic book, comic strip, single panel) as you build your own original personal story in cartoon form. If you can make a stick figure, you can get started!

3 hours, 6 weeks
