Comics Storytelling Workshop Intensive
with Dean Haspiel

Wednesday, December 5th
6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art (MoCCA) at the Society of Illustrators is proud to announce the third in the fall series of classes and events presented in conjunction with comics writer, editor, and instructor Danny Fingeroth, whose programs at MoCCA set the standard for comics education.


The next fall comics programs is Comics Storytelling Workshop Intensive, with instructor Dean Haspiel.


In this three-hour intensive session, Brooklyn's own Dean Haspiel will share  his knowledge of how to tell stories in words and pictures.  Whether your goal is to create your own stories from first inspiration to finished comic – paper or digital – or to work as part of a collaborative team, Dean will show you how ideas become images and images become stories.  Combining an interactive lecture with in-class assignments and critiques of each student's work, this class will test the limits of your storytelling abilities as you stretch heretofore-unknown narrative muscles.


(Note: Students are expected to bring sketchbooks and pencils.  A sense of wonder wouldn't hurt, either.)
