Yes, it’s that time again…time to tell you the glories of the Toronto Cartoonists Workshop, and all it’s classes.
TCW has expanded it’s selection of children’s art classes, and there are now classes available after school, and on Saturday and Sunday. Kids’ workshops will run for nine weeks. Classes for adults run in the afternoon, late afternoon, and early evening, and will run for seven weeks.
Ty will be teaching Writing for Comics, on Monday evenings (January 10-February 21) and Professional Layout and Storytelling for Comic Books and Graphic Novels on Tuesday evenings. Comic Book Inking: 4 Perspectives will run on Wednesday evenings, and I believe Ty will be teaching the first two classes (check with Sean Menard).
To the best of my knowledge, there are still spaces available in all TCW classes (all you savvy Christmas shoppers, saving their bucks and waiting to see what’s left after the holidays!), but they go fast this last week, so contact Sean Menard NOW! NOW! NOW! at Toronto Cartoonists Workshop and get in the class of your choice.
Ty is not the only instructor at TCW (hence that whole “4 Perspectives” idea behind the inking course!). Others, this semester, are:
the inimitable Leonard Kirk—Cover Design and Layout, co-taught with…
Scott Caple—Basic and Fundamental Drawing
Eric Kim—Manga Dojo Level I
Joseph O’Brien–Screenwriter’s Workshop: Basic Training (Joe is fitting this class in before he goes off to watch filming of his latest screenplay, announced last year at Cannes, and produced by Guillermo del Toro. So–yes, Joe knows of what he teaches)
J. Bone–1/4th the Perspective for Comic Book Inking
Sam Agro–another 1/4th for Comic Book Inking
Craig Yeung–making a full 4 Perspectives for Comic Book Inking.
Kids’ Workshops will be taught by
Eden Bachelder—Acrylic Painting
Ruzya Karpinec—Cartooning for Kids, Flipbook Animation
Walter Dickinson (the man who founded TCW)–Drawing Rodeo
Dave Lapp–Cartooning and Illustration for Kids
