The Art of Storytelling with Mark Levine


Have  you ever wanted to tell your story through characters and comic illustration? 

The Art-of-Storytelling will give each student the opportunity to explore their own concepts, stories and characters, in a sequential layout used in comic book and graphic novels. The course however is not limited to storyboarding for comic books. Mark will present to the class as a whole, his techniques and methodology as they can be applied to produce comic strips, cell animation, storyboards for a video game, or online graphics.It is important to note that each student will be given one on one direction and support by Mark in each class. He will encourage each student to work on their own level as far as talent, abilities, interest, and subject matter. He will direct students so that they can complete their individual goal(s), stay on task and develop a new set of skills. Some students will complete a three page story while others might complete a couple of stories that are 3-5 pages.Homework assignments are sometimes general one page assignments based on a theme given in class so that students  can develop the theme however they like and use whatever mediums they are comfortable with.Besides tapping into each students drawing and painting abilities as it applies to illustrating, Mark will teach layout and design, printing techniques, calligraphy, masthead-title page design and art direction.Lastly, Mark will encourage a “team” atmosphere that reflects on art studio bullpens that produce artwork for the comic book industry.Sharing ideas, sketching together, and discussing a broad range of subjects.
