So a few years ago Michelle Nunnelly (my sister) and I taught some online courses that were pretty successful. We’ve been talking back and forth about starting them again for a while now, and finally decided to start them around mid April or May. Sign ups would start before that. I will most another post when that happens. In the mean time we’re going to be making an official website with information.
There will only be 20 slots open at a time, so if you’re interested sign up as soon as you can. Last time we had a pretty decent amount of students.
WHAT WILL I BE TEACHING?
There are going to be three courses available to take.
First course: Storytelling in comics. We will teach you how to create a character, design a character, put that character in a story, and draw that story as a comic book. I will also teach things like how to make business cards, how to sell at conventions, and any other secrets that we have in the comic business.
- Second course: How to Color Comics.
- First course: Inking comics (I’ll have to talk to Michelle).
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
Each LESSON (not course) will cost about $30-50. The reason why we’re charging this time is because we’re going to be using a lot of our time to critique homework, make videos, and answering questions/e-mails. As your teacher I am pretty much at your leisure for that week. Anything that you need help with, I will assist you with.
For example if you made a business card you can e-mail Michelle and I on how to make it better.
A lot of people want the lessons to be very very cheap (Like $5.00) or free. Understand that if we did that it would make the lessons nearly impossible to do. I’d be balancing you, work, VACANT, and other commissions.
OKAY SO I REGISTERED. NOW WHAT?
Each lesson will probably be one on one. You will schedule an hour or two appointment with Michelle and I. During that hour we will critique your homework and answer any questions you have through video stream (Livestream, probably). Along with homework, we will also be sending you video lessons about the assignment.
The assignment is to create a character. Michelle and I will provide a video with tips on how. Not only will we provide examples from our own work, but examples from media. Then, during your scheduled meeting, we will critique your character.
BUT I HAVE SCHOOL/WORK/LIFE…
If you have a busy schedule, that’s perfectly okay. That’s partly the reason why we allow you to book your appointment.
WHAT IF MY PARENTS HAVE QUESTIONS?
Michelle and I are going to be putting together an official website soon. If your parent is the one paying for this, they are more than welcome to e-mail Michelle and I. Both of us have BFAs in cartooning and have experience with teaching.
IS THAT IT?
Yes! Now if anyone has any feedback or questions PLEASE COMMENT!!!!!
