Center for Cartoon Studies: Professional PracticesPosted: 20-11-2008
Alec Longstreth teaches aÂ Professional Practices class for second-year MFA students at the Center for Cartoon Studies.Â On Wednesday, Marek presented his Comics Workshop programs to the class, and answered students’ questions about educational models for comics instruction and exploration.Â We talked about a lot of different aspects of constructive, discovery-based arts instruction, with students taking part in dramatic readings, improvised sketches, and even a graphic singalong!Â
We also discussed this winter’s upcoming Henniker-San Ramon Comics Exchange delegation to Nicaragua.Â Several adventurous students expressed interest in joining the delegation.
Here’s one of the hand-outs, a list of tips and “essentials” for comics educators:
Many thanks to Alec and the Center for Cartoon Studies for hosting this lecture!
