Single-Year Intensive Program Announced

SAW is looking for serious students of comic book storytelling and sequential art. Whether your interest is personal stories, graphic novels, or genre comics or whether your concern is for entertainment, literary depth, or personal expression, then our program is for you. We have taught comics to illustration students and writers and English teachers, fine arts students, truck drivers, museum guards, scriptwriters, graphic designers, etc. In short, if you have passion and a dedication to learning sequential art, then the SAW single-year intensive is for you. Our single-year program is designed to challenge students both technically and intellectually. Single-year students will learn the basics of cartooning and narrative art. As they gain skills and craft from our faculty, we will also challenge and guide them into new ideas and solutions that will turn them into artists. All students will create a final publication of their own.
