Traditional storyboards involve a series of conceptual pencil sketches that help the writer, producer, and director to visualize their initial idea before filming or animating starts. The key to storyboarding is the practice and understanding of how moving productions work and storytelling is excavated. Looking at graphic novels, movies, TV series, or commercials, we can study each scene and draw them out. Look how camera angles help to tell a story and are cut up and told visually. In this course through week-to-week drawing exercises, students will develop a better understanding of these useful tools and develop confidence in their abilities.At the end of the course, our instructor will provide professional feedback and critique of visual storytelling. In order to see progress and benefit from the curriculum, a full course is recommended, as practice is everything.


The course will begin exploring basic storytelling: pacing, page flow, composition, and angles. We will:


  • Learn how to make a single illustration based on a favorite song, movie poster, or book.
  • Learn how to choose the elements to economically tell your story in summary without all of its parts
  • How to use unconventional shapes and manipulate anatomy and facial features to tell your story and lead the eye through a piece. Students will design their own characters, and an environment for the story to play.
  • Explore tension and learn how to build suspense to convey emotion in a narrative. Using the medium itself as a storytelling tool (artistic changes to panel border, page layout, etc) pacing, and framing. Students will design sample pages of an escalated emotional change between characters in their story- for example, a fight scene, a romantic interlude, etc.
  • Exercises on how to draw from a professional script with the subject matter of your choice. And how to draw panel-to-panel illustrations
  • How to categorize information, sort by importance, and turn information into a layout.
  • Your instructor will provide sample scripts but students can work from their own scripts/prompts/ poetry and will be asked to write a sample script (1-2 pages) to draw from to better understand the storytelling process
Requirements / Pre-Requisite:
  • All paper and the use of pencils and pens will be provided. However we do recommend bringing your own personal notebook so you can practice at home and journal your progress.
