Classes with Tom Hart in the Spring


Comics Classes with Tom Hart in the Spring

I'm teaching two classes for adults at SVA this spring. These are the last non-summer classes I'll teach before moving away to start my own school!

First is Sequential Art: Expanding Your Vision, which is a fancy way of saying Comics/Graphic Novel intensive.

We'll do exercises for the first 5-6 weeks, expanding our ideas about composition, transitions, page design, etc. We'll work on our own projects intensively for the remaining weeks. It's always a good class, and very flexible. When students come needing more exercises and help, I'll offer that. If they just need good sounding boards for their ideas and execution, I create an atmosphere for that too. I'll show a dozen or so slideshows giving historical, technical and thematic context for our work.

Monday evenings from 6:30-9:30. Register here.

Next class is Independent Projects Seminar: Comics. I teach this with Matt Madden and I'll let his description suffice:

Independent Projects Seminar: Comics is a great opportunity to get occasional feedback on a project you are working at on your own: graphic novel, short story, webcomic, whatever. We meet three times throughout the semester for full-day Saturday critique sessions which always generate thoughtful feedback and enlightening discussions from the whole group. We've had multiple repeat students in this class as it is well suited to artists who are basically working on their own but want to come in from the cold occasionally.

Three Saturdays plus time for email or a short personal conference. Register here.

There will be an open house/info session next Tuesday, January 11, where you can learn more about these and other classes. I'll be there as will a bunch of other teachers. Details below.

If a quick, 6 week class downtown is more your speed, I'm teaching at the 92Y Tribeca, as well. Take a look here: http://www.92y.org/shop/92Tri_class_detail.asp?productid=MD3AF19
