Elements from this class are required foundations for all future artwork created by TAD students. Armed with this knowledge, students will be able to identify what is wrong with their own work, and will strengthen their ability to create cohesive and unified images that tell stories as individual compositions and over time through sequential art as seen in comic books, graphic novels, and storyboards. This essential class cultivates an artist's ability to create artwork in improved visual storytelling, enabling deeper communication and development of ideas in the arts.
