The Pacific Northwest College of Art has, for the last five years, been offering a graphic novel intensive program and this year it's scheduled to be conducted by the lovely and talented Ryan Alexander-Tanner and yours truly. As two comics creators with more than a passing interest in the power of comics in education (Ryan is co-author with William Ayers of the amazing To Teach: The Journey, in Comics ), this year's program will differ from previous years' sessions and focus not only on the making of comics, but on how to incorporate comics into the classroom. If you're a librarian or teacher or anyone with a healthy interest in the educational possibilities of comics, this is the intensive for you.
The program will run from June 20th to the 24th in lovely Portland, Oregon (one of the meccas of comics art in the United States, no lie). Click HERE to find out more, or to sign up. If you have any questions, write me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will answer you past haste. Hope to see you in Portland!
